Organic food prices varied by as much as 110 per cent between retailers in a recent survey done by the Icelandic Federation of Labour, Alþýðusambandið (ASÍ). The price of 17 types of organic produce was surveyed in stores in the greater Reykjavík area. Eight categories showed a 30 per cent spread, six categories a 50 per cent price difference; the largest difference, 110 percent, was in the price of a 500 gram container of raisins.
Fjarðarkaup, a supermarket in Hafnarfjörður, most often had the least expensive prices.
According to the survey, it is substantially more expensive to buy organic produce than normal produce.
