Organic foods in new Zealand is a very small market and so prices are crazy.
We already spend $300 a week on food in new Zealand and get less than what we got in USA for $100 and that isn't even buying good healthy foods.
My advice is - eat with the seasons.
Because we don't fly so much stuff in, prices are extremely seasonal. Tomatoes, peppers and salad are a lot at the moment, but carrots, parsnips and pumpkins are cheap.
So it can be really difficult to compare prices.
