Our Story


Our History


We love watercress


Watercress is a natural superfood, rich in vitamins A, C and E, as well as iron and calcium. It’s incredibly healthy, and tasty too, with a refreshing, peppery flavour. Watercress can be eaten raw or cooked and can be used in anything from sandwiches and salads to soups and stir fries.

Our Farms


A watercress field

We have five watercress farms across Sun Salads UK and Sun Salads Espana. Our four farms in the UK are located in the Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire areas of southern England, where our watercress grows in spring water naturally filtered through local chalk. We have our own packing facility on our Holwell farm and can supply pre-packaged watercress or loose watercress for retail, wholesale and processing.

A watercress field in Seville

Our Spanish farm in Seville is one of the most advanced of its type. Our watercress is grown under a mesh house which gives protection from pests and extreme weather. We use innovative harvesting technology for minimal product handling. Our Spanish farm means we are able to supply fresh watercress all year round.

Our Growing Process


We produce and propagate our own Seeds and grow them in natural spring water. It takes around six to eight weeks for our watercress to grow to harvest stage, largely depending on the climate. Once our watercress is ready, we harvest it and package it ready for delivery to our customers.

Quality


Our farms are Red tractor, Global Gap and Grasp Accredited and registered with Sedex.
