Vitacress Limited

Vitacress is responsible for all of RAR Group's operations in the fresh produce market and is focused on producing “ready to eat" salads and fresh herbs.

All Vitacress operations share some common attributes: excellence in the farming, whether it is from open field farming or greenhouses, leading standards in terms of product quality, technical skills and environmental stewardship and all are leaders in their chosen markets.

Vitacress operations share a common denominator of excellence in agricultural production (both in open fields and greenhouses), high standards of product quality, technical and environmental management skills, and leadership in their markets.

Based in Runcton, southern England, Vitacress' fresh herb business is the market leader in the United Kingdom. Fresh herbs are also packaged in the Netherlands at Vitacress Real, a joint venture with the Dutch group Gipmans, in which Vitacress holds a majority position. Their products are sold in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and France.

Salad products from southern England, Portugal and Spain are packaged as "ready-to-eat" products at the company's facilities in St Mary Bourne, Hampshire.

Salad leaves, watercress, and fresh herbs grown in the Alentejo and Algarve Portuguese regions are also sold in Portugal and Spain under the Vitacress brand. This vast network of production locations ensures that Vitacress companies have a range of sourcing options that allow them to supply high-quality products throughout the year.

The Vitacress Conservation Trust is an excellent good example of sustainability, promoting the preservation and conservation of wildlife and habitats on Vitacress' agricultural operations.
