Questions you're asking
If you do have a question that isn't answered, please talk to us...
QAre your products pesticide-free?
AUnfortunately it isn't possible to produce plants that are free from all weeds, pests and diseases in an outdoor environment, and at times we will need to treat a crop. We only do this when absolutely necessary and our salads are regularly tested to ensure they are safe to eat. In fact because fresh & naked uses baby leaves they have a very short growing cycle which usually means they have limited exposure to any treatments.
QDo I really have to wash the leaves?
AWe do advise that you should wash your fresh&naked leaves before eating, as they are grown in open fields. Wash them in running water and drain in a colander or give them a whirl in a salad spinner just before serving.
QIs your packaging recyclable?
AThe bags are not recyclable, as although the film and paper layers could be it's the glue that holds them together that isn't. However the bags do help the leaves to last for longer because they prevent dehydration, and the double layer makes a stronger bag to protect our little leaves. Recyclable packaging is something we're very keen on, but at the moment the cost and performance of the materials are still some way off.
QWhat does ‘Various’ mean on the Country of Origin panel?
AOn our single product packs we put the country of origin, but the mixes may contain leaves from France, Spain or Italy, particularly in the winter when we can't grow salad leaves in this country. We are allowed to just put 'Various' but so many people have asked about this that we're looking at increasing the overprint area so we can list each country.
QWill fresh&naked have organic products?
AAs growers we do have organic farms, but we don't have any immediate plans to add organic leaves to the fresh&naked range. We think our little leaves are great quality and value as it is!
