SPECIAL BANANA UPDATE (from your newly appointed banana correspondent, ie. me): The president of the Australian Banana Growers’ Council, Cameron Mackay, says there are already more bananas coming onto the market and supply should really begin to return to more normal levels by end September.
Hang in there banana lovers, lower prices are on their way!
How quickly prices fall will, however, depend on the supermarkets. Mackay advises banana shoppers to shop around for the best deal.
For a thoughtful and thorough discussion of this and other banana trends (including some particularly bad banana puns) listen to this interview I did this morning with ABC Adelaide Radio’s Matt and Dave (includes their interview with the banana growers’ chief banana, Cameron Mackay).
