Fish, vegetable prices on the rise due to Thai floods

SINGAPORE: Floods in southern Thailand have made it more expensive for businesses to import fish and vegetables into Singapore. Vegetable importers said that there has been a delay in their supply due to heavy rains which affect transportation. This is why, for every 15kg of vegetables brought in, the price has increased by S$2. Transport woes have also affected the supply of popular fish and fish-based products. Some importers said that the prices of such fish have doubled. Lee Boon Cheow, President of the Singapore Fish Merchant's General Association, said: "From S$3-4 a kilo of our wholesale up to S$6-7. So we expect when the weather is better or the flood is over, the price will go back as normal."
