Tomato prices have slumped even further, after a record low price last week, RNZ reports. On Thursday, Royal Oak Pak ‘n’ Save in Auckland was selling the fruit for eight cents a kilo. The pressure the Covid-19 pandemic is putting on freight movements is being blamed for a tomato glut in the domestic market. Helen Barnes, Tomatoes New Zealand general manager, said prices that low were not profitable and tomato growers have been struggling to get product off-shore, which had led to an oversupply in the local market.
