Expat French blogger Katuali complains (Fr) about the ridiculous markup in prices on French products in New Caledonia, an Oceanian island which is technically part of France [1]: “That there be taxes and custom fees is fine but from there to selling a product 6.65 times more than what it costs in mainland France, is it really worth it? To top it all off, it's a product that is supposed to be eaten fresh.”
