TRACTOR FACT: Did you know…
Red Tractor assured farms even test the water used to irrigate fruit and vegetables
Fresh fruit and vegetables are vital components of a healthy diet, and Red Tractor growers help us to reduce our food miles by growing safe, healthy, fresh produce in the UK.
Fruit and vegetables are often eaten uncooked which presents some risks that must be managed. Red Tractor growers are required to meet rigorous hygiene standards and manage their operations in a way that maintains food safety and minimises risk, including testing the water they use to irrigate their crops.
When you see the Red Tractor logo on your fruit or vegetables, you can be confident that they have been grown to our rigorous standards and can be traced back through the supply chain to the British farms they came from.
