With the guarantee of a fully integrated production system, in Murciana de Vegetales we count with a 35.000 sqm greenhouse used as plant nursery. The facility includes germination chambers and high accuracy seeding machines (VISSER). This way, we look after the lettuce from the very beginning.
An effective logistic system made up of a fleet of truck heads and reefer trailers keeps the produce in the best conditions from the field to our refrigerated warehouse.
QUALITY: WE INNOVATE AND DEVELOP NEW PRODUCTS WITH THE MAXIMUM QUALITY
Our facilities include a modern laboratory accredited by ENAC to carry out analysis of pesticides. We can guarantee maximum control and quality in all our products.
Our lettuce crops are certified by AENOR under the norm UNE 155000:2008 GLOBALGAP, BRC and IFS.
On top of that, we count with two very important international accreditations:
- Field to Fork accreditation.
- QS Certificate.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (R+D)
At Murciana de Vegetales we give great value to the importance of research and development on lettuce. This is the reason why we count with a qualified team of technicians as part of our compromise with innovation.
We own 3.500 m2 of greenhouses with controlled atmosphere, 10.000 m2 allotted for research to improve our lettuce varieties (Little Gem, Romaine, etc.) and to study the effect of pesticides waste.
