14th May 2021 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

Rising prices for tomatoes and cucumbers were the main contributors to a 1.1% rise in food prices in April 2021, according to Stats NZ’s latest food price index.

Fruit and vegetable prices rose 4.8% in April 2021, compared with the same month last year.

Stats NZ said tomatoes rose to a weighted average price of $6.34 per kilo, more than double the March price – and the biggest monthly price rise in over 10 years.

However, meat, poultry, and fish prices decreased 2.2%; grocery food prices were down 1.3%; and non-alcoholic beverage prices dropped 3.4%
