Fruit lovers re­joice Down Un­der

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

Aussie fruit lovers are re­joic­ing, as an over­sup­ply of straw­ber­ries has caused “ridicu­lous” low prices. Over­lap­ping Aus­tralian straw­berry sea­sons have caused the price of the berries to plum­met, with pun­nets sell­ing for the bar­gain base­ment price of 80 Aus­tralian cents (60US cents) around the na­tion. Su­per­mar­kets have been ac­cused of “flood­ing” the mar­ket with straw­ber­ries thanks to an over­sup­ply caused by a longer-than-usual season in Queens­land and an ear­lierthan-ex­pected start to the season in Western Australia.
