Bumper Soft Fruit Harvest Helps Lower Inflation
Published: 20 Jun 2012
According to figures released by the Office of National Statistics (ONS), the wet summer endured in the UK so far in 2012, has led to a bumper soft fruit harvest, which has helped lower inflation.
The ONS said that bumper crops of in particular grapes, bananas, peaches and nectarines helped keep food price rises to just 0.3%, compared to 1.3% this time last year. According to the ONS the price of vegetables, mineral waters, soft drinks and juices also fell.
With Fresh Pod's natural and 100% organic ethylene control technology, it is possible to fully benefit from this bumper harvest, by prolonging the life of the excess produce, allowing it to be enjoyed and eaten rather than consigned to landfill.
