Banana prices look likely to drop again, after Asda lowered its price to 68p per kg the cheapest they have been in nearly six months.

It had previously been selling loose bananas for 77p/kg but this week cut its price by 9p. The last time bananas were on sale for less than 70p/kg was last December when Morrisons and Asda were selling at 67p/kg [BrandView.co.uk].

The move was quickly followed by Tesco, but the other mults were still selling bananas at 77p/kg as The Grocer went to press. In the past they have also followed Asda's cuts.
