Salanova® stands for fresh, easy-to-prepare lettuce with great tasting baby-sized leaves. With just one cut a Salanova lettuce separates into numerous small, ready-to-eat leaves. With the introduction of Salanova® Rijk Zwaan gives lettuce a name.

Fresh and convenience
With the new combination of freshness and convenience consumers are able to enjoy a totally new quality of lettuce. Salanova comes in many forms and colours which are all equally crunchy and taste equally fresh and delicious. For each type we are constantly developing a range of varieties. These are interesting for consumers as well as for the processing industry.

Different types
There are two main types of Salanova lettuce. The Salanova Incised Leaf types are characterised by their deeply-incised leaves with an attractive 3-D leaf structure and a good shelf life. With just one straight cut, all the leaves come away very simply and easily. The Multileaf types are characterised by the large number of uniform, small leaves per head. The core of the Multileaf types is easily removed with the specially-developed Salanova corer or by cutting it out with a circular movement. Within the main types, there are different types of lettuce.

Worldwide concept
Salanova is supported with a lot of marketing activities. Also we are working with a worldwide Salanova network of Rijk Zwaan crops specialists, growers, processors and retailers because we believe information exchange is essential. After all, together we must keep striving for further improvements in the leafy-salads market, so that we can continue to build on its success all over the world.
