IAG Cargo commits to UK lettuce shortage

The UK’s heatwave has led to the depletion of lettuces off supermarket shelves and IAG Cargo has noted a spike in cargo deliveries of lettuce having delivered over 30,000 heads of iceberg lettuce from Los Angeles to the UK to meet the gap in UK demand.

“We ship fresh produce to over 350 locations, 24/7, helping Brits continue to receive fresh fruit and veg so they can enjoy the wonderful weather the UK has been experiencing,” said IAG Cargo director of sales, marketing and products Camilo Garcia.

“We take the responsibility of shipping lettuce to the UK very seriously – our dedicated ‘Constant Fresh’ product team ensure that lettuce heads arrive promptly and in excellent condition in London Heathrow ready to hit supermarket shelves across the country.”
