Tesco says a bumper lettuce crop has enabled it to slash the price of its iceberg lettuce.

Cambridgeshire-based G’s Fresh, which supplies about 90% of Tesco icebergs, said favourable weather meant it was expecting crops up 50% to 75% on last year.

A year ago, Tesco was charging £1 for icebergs but has now dropped the rsp to 49p and is selling them at two-for-75p - or 38p each. The other top five mults are selling single icebergs from 49p to 69p [BrandView.com].
