Ba­nanas in short sup­ply

Weekend Herald - - News -

New Zealand is run­ning short of ba­nanas. Changes in in­ter­na­tional ship­ping have led to de­pleted stocks at super­mar­kets. “Ba­nana sup­plies are short right now due to un­fore­seen ship­ping is­sues,” said An­toinette Laird, spokes­woman for Food­stuffs NZ, the group which in­cludes New World, Pak’nSave and Four Square super­mar­kets. “But the good news is we ex­pect sup­ply to be back to nor­mal by the end of the month.” On av­er­age, New Zealan­ders each con­sume around two ba­nanas a week, ac­cord­ing to data col­lected by Sta­tis­tics NZ.
