Lettuce is a leafy vegetable rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and zeaxanthin, a super antioxidant that boosts vision. The commodity, which offers various health benefits such as promoting digestive health and enhancing bone strength, currently costs $2,860/tonne(increased by 16.6% in the last one month).

Whilst lettuce can be grown across most states in Nigeria, domestic production remains at less than 1% (<200,000 tonnes) of global output (26.87 million tonnes). This presents an opportunity for commercial investment in the lettuce value chain.
