Number one ingredient
Supplying watercress for soups, sauces, pestos, ice cream and even gin!
The UK's food innovators seem to have no limitations... our watercress is found all over the UK High Street in nutraceuticals, beverages, cosmetics, frozen aisles, sandwiches, sauces, fresh pesto, salads and our favourite - mouth-watering smoothies.
Due to its unique peppery flavour and highly regarded health attributes, watercress has been on the development list for many businesses at some point. Thanks to the historic and loyal support from UK consumers for this punchy leaf in UK homes, watercress on food packaging attracts customers.
The creativity never fails to amaze us and it's not just big business that uses watercress to create innovative new products; we are finding more new businesses are contacting us to source reliable, high quality and product specific watercress for their new products.
This love affair with the “Champion of the Chopping Board” is now percolating overseas and we are finding our powders in the USA and our leaves on menus throughout Europe, as well as in some of the finer retailers looking to enjoy not only the health benefits of watercress but the culinary revolution sparked by this renaissance in the UK.
