Herbs

Vitacress is the market leader in living and cut fresh herbs in the UK. The completion in 2015 of our cutting edge herb nursery and packing facility builds on our expertise in growing, procurement and innovation.

Vitacress supplies 20 million pots of living herbs and 60 million packs of fresh cut and bunched herbs per year.

Glasshouses

Our  living herbs are grown in glasshouses. This gives us control over atmospheric conditions and ensures that we can monitor growth and plant condition very carefully; this means that we can supply our customers with British living herbs throughout the year.

At any one time, we have 3 million pots of living herb growing on site under the care of our growers who collectively have over 400 years of experience between them.

 

 

 

 

 

Hand Picked Herbs

 

Fresh cut herbs

We grow a great deal of our cut herbs outdoors on our own farms in the UK, Spain and Portugal. We move with the seasons to ensure that our herbs reach the consumer in the best possible condition, with the minimum impact on the environment.

We also work with trusted partners to ensure that we are always able to supply the finest quality, regardless of the season.

We are constantly developing our methods to ensure that the product which reaches the consumer is in optimal condition, while providing a cost-effective solution to ensure that the growing demand for herbs continues to develop.
