We’re passionate about healthy eating and doing what we can to make a difference. Helping children understand where their food comes from and the importance of healthy eating is a vital part of this approach.
We launched our Field to Fork tours in June 2008, building the tour and accompanying materials around the requirements of the National Curriculum, in conjunction with educational experts. Since that time, over 1000 local school children have visited our sites to learn about the journey their food makes.
Learning how salad is grown
Children spend half a day with us discovering how lettuce crops are planted, grown and harvested and how the salad travels from the field to their fork. Our Product Managers are ready to answer questions and explain every aspect of the process, from farming to manufacturing.
The tour culminates in a session in our innovation kitchen, where children learn about healthy eating, have an opportunity to sample a huge selection of ingredients, some very familiar and some less so, and then make up their own bag of salad to take home.
