Leafy vegetables to cost more
Leafy vegetables will cost more in Singapore, as supply has been hit by floods in Malaysia.
Wholesalers say the supply of leafy vegetables from Johor Bahru has been cut by between 20 and 30 per cent.
That pushed up the wholesale price by about 20 per cent.
Wholesalers expect the shortage to last a week or two... and hope that the weather improves so that the supply for the Lunar New Year won't be hit.
Singapore imports about 40 per cent of its vegetables, both leafy and non-leafy, from Malaysia.
