As one of (if not THE) biggest and best suppliers of fresh produce to the UK foodservice market, we’re pretty clued-up when it comes to salads and stems.

Our stem range is just as diverse and includes asparagus, celery, rhubarb (both forced and outdoor), cardoons, wild leeks and kohlrabi.
Generally speaking for salads and stems, if you want it, there’s a very good chance we can supply it – so all you need to do is ask!
Salads and stems are edible plant leaves and plant stems that come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours, but share close similarities in nutrition and cooking methods.
Generally, salads and leafy vegetables are low in calories and fat, and high in dietary fibre, iron, calcium, vitamin C and vitamin K, making them a pretty healthy accompaniment for most dishes.
