UK Specific Marketing Standards Lettuce Mobile App
The UK Specific Marketing Standards Lettuce mobile app covers minimum marketing requirements.
How does it work?
This standard applies to lettuces of varieties (cultivars) grown from: Lactuca sativa var. capitata L. (head lettuces including crisphead and "Iceberg" type lettuces), Lactuca sativa var. longifolia Lam. (cos or romaine lettuces), Lactuca sativa var. crispa L. (leaf lettuces), crosses of these varieties and curled-leaved endives of varieties (cultivars) grown from Cichorium endivia var. crispum Lam. and broad-leaved (Batavian) endives (escaroles) of varieties (cultivars) grown from Cichorium endivia var. latifolium Lam. to be supplied fresh to the consumer. This standard does not apply to produce for industrial processing, produce presented as individual leaves, lettuces with root ball or lettuces in pots. The purpose of the standard is to define the quality requirements for produce, after preparation and packaging.
