The Steve’s Leaves family is growing with the launch of a brand-new mixed salad bag called Sweet Beets & Little Leaves. Containing a combination of shredded beetroot, lamb’s lettuce, baby red chard and deep red beet leaves, the range will be available in Waitrose and Ocado from 17 June.
The new Sweet Beets & Little Leaves are grown outside in natural sunlight, then gently washed in spring water and packed in pillow bags filled with fresh air, which is designed to prevent damage. This packaging also ensures the leaves remain fresh throughout the entire supply chain journey. The 70g bags are ideal for consumers looking to minimise waste, as each bag is the right size for a main for one or a side for two.
Eleanor Bridgman, Head of Innovation and Marketing at Steve’s Leaves, says: “We are confident that our new Sweet Beets & Little Leaves bags will appeal not only to consumers looking for a fresh and delicious bagged salad, but also to those who are conscious about the environment. We are proud that our baby leaves are farmed in partnership with nature and we make it our mission to nurture healthy soils and build biodiversity. Each of our farms sets aside land to allow nature to thrive.”
Sweet Beets’ mild colourful mix joins peppery Baby Watercress & Little Leaves and sweet Pea Shoots & Baby Leaves as the latest member of the Steve’s Leaves family.
The Steve’s Leaves range is available from branches of Waitrose and online at Ocado at RRP £1.40*.
