NZ tomato prices have finally dropped below $10 a kilogram

After months of extremely high prices, the price of a kilogram of tomatoes is finally starting to drop in New Zealand. Stuff’s monthly grocery price database indicates that, with the arrival of spring, prices have at last dipped below the $10 per kilogram mark. The cheapest tomatoes were at Pak ‘n Save Moorhouse, at $6.49/kg, while the most expensive were at Countdown Porirua at $9.49/kg. New Worlds in Christchurch, Wellington, and Auckland had them at $6.99/kg.

Pak ‘n Save Mt Albert and Pak ‘n Save Kilbirnie were charging $7.99/kg, while Countdown Moorhouse and Countdown Mt Roskill had tomatoes for $8.79/kg.

In general, New Zealand food prices were 8.3% higher in September than the year before, a 13-year-high, while the price of tomatoes rose nearly $4 between July and August alone, according to Stats NZ.
