You will be please to know OUR SALAD IS UNWASHED. To sell salad as 'washed' we would be obliged to use a disinfectant chlorinated solution. All big retail salad is washed in this stuff, to comply with food safety standards chlorine must be used. We will not be washing our salad. We take great care when picking and packing our salad. We are inspected and approved of by The soil association, food hygiene, health and safety, and trading standard inspectors. Our aim is to create a balance where we provide habitats to naturally encourage predators to eat the pests when the plants are in the ground, and in the packing room we sort through every leaf, but if the odd slug gets through, you can be pleased to know, our salad is unwashed so YOU WILL NOT BE EATING CHEMICALS!
