Kiwi prices soar in New Zealand

Mon, 01/20/2020 - 17:22

New Zealand’s kiwi fruits rose 32% in price during December 2019 to €4.93/kilo, almost double the price recorded in December 2018 of €2.53/kilo. The quality of the country’s crop this campaign has been very good, albeit with a shorter harvest. The higher prices are partly due to the smaller crop and partly due to the relative absence at this point of Northern Hemisphere fruit.
Price of fresh produce rose 2.1 % overall in December, with the gains partly offset by falls in nectarine (-24%) and lettuce (-18%) prices.
