Frozen Berry Prices

An article regarding Australian frozen berries costing almost 3 times as much as frozen berries from Canada, USA and Chile.

Whilst the photo of the imported berries is missing fron the article, they are obviously referring to Oob Organic Berries which my wife regularly uses in her smoothies.

Coles sell Oob berries for $9.70 kg when not on special, and since they are produced in countries which have good food safety reputations, I don’t see how paying 3 times as much for Australian product is justified.

As for the Creative Gourmet frozen berries which are produced in China and have caused 2 disease outbreaks in Australia, I would not touch them even if they were free.
