    Getting your daily dose of vitamin C proved pricey, with oranges reaching a record price last month

    Getting your daily dose of vitamin C proved pricey, with oranges reaching a record price last month


    Statistics New Zealand has today released its food price data for May.

    Oranges rose to a record $4.58 a kilo.

    Consumer prices manager Gael Price says global dairy auction prices have also risen this year, pushing the cost of cheese up at the supermarket.

    A kilo of mild cheddar rose to its highest price in almost five years.

    On the flip side, the cost of broccoli, potatoes, and cabbage fell with the cooler weather.
