    Replace that breakfast bacon with some smashed avocado

    Replace that breakfast bacon with some smashed avocado


    New figures from Stats NZ show avocados are at their cheapest average price since February 2017.

    But pork prices are skyrocketing, because of the outbreak of African swine fever in China.

    The price of bacon has increased 24 per cent in the year to October, and ham has gone up 22-percent.

    Overall food prices are up 2.5-percent, led by a sharp rise with a restaurant and ready-to-eat meals.
