Lettuce Lettuce is a

Lettuce Lettuce is a popular salad vegetable, particularly in the West. The consumer is encouraged by a variety of organisations to eat healthy, and that means eating vegetables. “The consumer also wants tasty products, particularly the ones that are quick and easy to prepare,” explains Steven Zeevat, Portfolio Manager at Enza Zaden. “We see that lettuce consumption is increasing, particularly the crunchier lettuce varieties such as cos and iceberg lettuce.” Firstly, consumers buy lettuce because it is a vegetable that goes well with virtually every dish. In addition, the increasing popularity of ready-to-use packs certainly plays a role. After all, these packs satisfy today's demand for food that is easy and quick to prepare. “They also offer diversification, as people like to create a tasty mix of a variety of types of salad leaves, such as baby-leaf varieties, spinach and rocket. If you had to buy a whole head of each type of lettuce to create that mix, you would end up with an absolutely huge salad. These ready-to-use packs contain a great mix of salad leaves in just the right quantity.” Enza Zaden has a wide range of lettuce varieties. Magali Lemont Breeder Lettuce France 102 | Enza Zaden
