Produce of USA.
Now here in the UK this pack cost £1.25.Convert to U.S. and you get $1.75 using $1.40 to the £1.
That is 87cents each. Checking the price in Safeway Tacoma over on the west coast the price of a pack of three is $2.99 or 99cents each.
Most of the U.S. harvest of Romaine lettuce is grown in California and Arizona and is available year round. How does this lettuce travel 5,000 miles, by air, and end up cheaper in the UK by 12cents. Small amount I know but it`s been flown across the the pond. Tacoma Safeway is only 900 miles from California but can`t beat Tesco UK on price.
Are you as posh as Nb Valerie having your lettuce flown in.
Recently purchased lettuce are produce of Spain, same price. Not quite the same having to say our lettuce came by truck through the Euro Tunnel.
