Ensuring Food Safety Amidst the E.coli Outbreak

In light of the recent E.Coli outbreak in the United Kingdom, we want to take a moment to reassure our valued customers and those looking to become a customer about the measures we have in place to ensure the safety of our produce.

We are dedicated to the food safety of our customers. Throughout the year, we adhere to strict control measures to maintain the highest standards of food safety in our farming and production operations, ensuring that our produce is consistently safe to eat.

Testing and Monitoring


We thoroughly test our crops, water and conduct swabs throughout the year. Our thorough testing allows us to identify and address any potential contamination before it becomes a wider issue. All recent tests and analyses related to Blackdown Growers produce have been satisfactory so far with no issues and cause for concern.

In addition to this, we have been taking additional precautionary measures by requesting and receiving tests results from all our external suppliers. These results have also shown no issues and cause for concern.

Safety Reminder: Wash Before Use

We take every possible step to ensure the safety of our produce, but it is essential to remember that our produce is unwashed and should be washed before use. Washing your lettuce and any other fresh produce for that matter can help remove any further contamination.
