Fruit and veg wholesalers unconcerned about ItaEliza Rogers, Thursday April 17, 2014 - 12:49 EST
Fruit and vegetable wholesalers across Australia aren't expecting a major impact on supply and price from Cyclone Ita in Queensland.
The cyclone swept through the north of the state a week ago, lashing banana, tomato and cane crops with heavy rains and strong winds.
Tony Nigro, from the Melbourne Markets, says prices will fluctuate with supply and demand, but he doesn't expect any real change until later this year.
"At the moment, it's very hard to gauge, but if there were losses that meant growers had to replant, that won't be reflected until two or three months down the line, I would suggest."
