Brexit Price Rises Now Hit Bananas As Fruit Goes Up For First Time In 5 Years

Bananas are traded in dollars, Mail Online reported, meaning the 17 percent fall in the value of the pound against the US currency has made the fibre-rich treat more expensive to source.

Aldi said it had increased the cost of a pack of the fruit to 72p but hadn’t increased the cost of its loose varieties.

However industry insiders told the Guardian that the budget supermarket could be hiding a much a bigger price increase as the pack was likely to weigh in at around 700g.
