Growing the freshest, tastiest, healthiest leaves is second nature to us
We pick innovative methods
We grow our leaves with care. For the land, nature, and each other. We use the latest innovations to grow safely and sustainably.
Leaders in our field
We place sustainability at the heart of our business. Planting and maintaining conservation strips, for example, provide habitats and protection for our wildlife. Improving biodiversity is just one of the ways we are farming sustainably.
From plant to plate
As innovative growers, we use cutting edge technology at all stages of the supply chain. We control every step – from hand-picking seeds and choosing 100% recyclable pots and packaging, to transporting our fresh leaves and herbs in our fuel efficient fleet. We reduce environmental impact whenever we can.
Water is precious
We don’t waste a drop. We recirculate our water to irrigate our herbs and in the UK, the spring water we use to wash our salads is then used to grow our watercress. Safeguarding our supply and contributing towards more environmentally friendly methods of growing.
