Nine of the 10 products in our fresh produce basket registered a change this week - more than at any time since we introduced Price Flash.
The total cost of our fresh produce basket has increased 13.1% since May 3, and it is now 9.6% more expensive than it was on January 10.
White seedless grapes accounted for the greatest price rise, 75.3%, led by all four retailers increasing their prices. This reflected the traditional seasonal changeover from Indian and Chilean sources to less plentiful supplies from Mexico and Egypt.
Bananas rose 14.9% following identical rises at all four retailers. This is the first major rise in banana prices for years, and has been variously attributed to poor weather conditions and a shortage of quarterly licences.
Prices are expected to remain at this new level for at least the rest of this quarter.
