Cultivation

Planting of iceberg lettuce plants starts at the end of February. The planting schedule runs until the end of August. During this period, plants are added on a weekly basis. This enables us to provide buyers with a constant flow of iceberg lettuce. During the growth process, the plants are monitored closely to ensure the quality of the end product.

Harvest

In mid-May, the harvest season for Dutch iceberg lettuce starts. The harvesting team starts cutting the iceberg lettuce early in the morning. Straight after cutting, the iceberg lettuce is packaged and put in boxes according to customer specification.

Storage

The full harvesting carts are driven to the modern cold storage, immediately after harvesting. In the cold storage, an automated process follows, which cools the iceberg lettuce back to 3 degrees Celsius using a vacuum cooler. Once the iceberg lettuce has reached the right temperature, it is ready for direct delivery to the customer.

Certificates

The iceberg lettuce is Global Gap certified.
