Green coconut prices up fourfold in Barisal

Traders say prices of green coconut have jumped fourfold since the past month. For this, they blame the interference of middlemen and the lack of preservation and marketing facilities. They claimed that the supply of green coconuts remained scarce, compounded by a significant increase in transportation costs compared to the previous year.

However, others claim the Barisal traders are taking advantage of an immense rise in demand amid the outbreak of dengue across the country. Green coconuts are considered essential for replenishing fluids for dengue patients, prompting their relatives to flock to roadside vendors.
