WHAT WE GROW

CUT SALAD

There’s nothing like a crisp salad to dress up a dinner plate or add crunch to your lunch.

All our cut salads feature delicious iceberg or romaine lettuce grown with care and processed daily to stay fresh from farm to table.

WHERE DOES IT GROW?

The lettuce that goes into our salad bags is grown on our Gisborne and Pukekohe farms.

Both farms boast warmer temperatures and great growing conditions for all kinds of leafy vegetables, perfect for lettuce.

LEADERBRAND SALAD FACTORY - Cut Salad

HOW DO WE MAKE IT?

We put in the hard yards to make sure our cut salads is always top-quality and as fresh as can be. Here’s how we grow and bag ours:

  1. We harvest all of our lettuce daily which is then quickly transported to our salad house.
  2. At our salad house in Gisborne, we prep, double-wash, shred, dry and pack the salad for transporting.
  3. We use our state-of-the-art drying machine to remove any excess moisture, giving it a longer shelf life.
  4. We deliver to our retail and wholesale customers nationwide . Plus, since it’s already washed and dried, our bagged salad is ready to enjoy straight out of the bag.
