Spain

Winter spinach, kale and cavolo nero

Our Spanish farm Emmett Murcia SL is based at El Algar, near the city of Murcia.

Kale

We first went there in 1985 and started farming in our own right soon afterwards. We grow our full range in Spain, both conventional and organic. We have our own factory for cooling, consolidation and despatch that includes robotic tray filling for our spinach. All our products are sent as raw material to our factory in Lincolnshire for packing; this helps to keep our products fresher for longer.

With the quality and output of available spinach harvesters not meeting our requirements we decided to design and build our own, in Spain, in 2015; we now use Harod exclusively at Emmett and are marketing them worldwide to other growers.
