What is Vitacress Farm Excellence?
Vitacress, in partnership with LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) and HIWWT (Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust), launched Vitacress Farm Excellence, with LEAF Marque certification on World Environment Day on the 5thJune.
Vitacress Farm Excellence with LEAF Marque certification is an outcomes based approach to measuring environmental improvements through ecological appraisals and surveys, individually tailored conservation management plans and bespoke LEAF Sustainable Farming Review Reporting with KPIs and action plans for continuous improvement.
The programme ensures that Vitacress’ farming techniques across leaf crop, protected growing and aquaculture are taken to the next level in sustainable farming and are ready for the new agricultural and environmental legislative changes that are coming. Vitacress has a core commitment to sustainability, demonstrated by its value of: “We care: we make decisions for sustainable growth and are determined to leave things better than we found them. Our people care for and endeavour to protect and enhance nature, our growing business, and the communities in which we work.”
