Lettuce Market Driver

The lettuce (Lactuca Sativa l.) The Plant is one of the World's Most commercially important green vegetable crops.

  • A significant quantity of antioxidant chemicals, especially vitamin C and polyphenols, as well as fibre, contribute to lettuce's healing effects. However, there is a rising need for greater variety and more convenient services.

This rather unique manner of consuming a familiar favourite has considerable promise in the fresh produce market. It is ideal for weight control, requires no cooking, and has the all-important convenience element.

Lettuce Market Restraint

Increase in Price

  • Floods, conflict, and pandemics are the primary factors. Prices are also influenced by worldwide events. Fertilizer, for example, is up 120% from a year ago. Farmers' prices are rising because of the Ukraine conflict and Chinese lockdowns. Even China's shutdown is influencing the global supply chain. The costs of the pandemic are currently being borne by the food chain.
