2019 : Idyl becomes producer of salads of Provence
By becoming involved as a salad producer in Provence, Idyl plays a decisive role in the local agricultural economy.
Commitment and quality: Lettuce from Provence
To the south of Avignon, Idyl plays a major role in organising the marketing of lettuce from Provence. Idyl works with the best producers in the region and is committed to sustainable partnerships to better plan for supplies, jointly draw up specifications and set appropriate selling conditions. The consideration of all stakeholders’ demands and maintaining relationships on a daily basis are essential to forging a sector that is traceable, sustainable and fair.
Organic lettuce from Provence
More committed to organic farming than ever, Idyl works closely with organic producers in the Provence region. For this new organic range, Idyl is offering three popular lettuce varieties: batavia, oak leaf and butterhead lettuces, grown between Avignon and Saint-Martin-de-Crau by nearly 30 organic producers with a potential yield of 10 million heads of lettuce. The crops are grown under shelter, in high tunnels or in multi-span greenhouses. Thanks to a large network of partners in Provence, three lines will be continually supplied from mid-September through April.
In early 2019, Idyl started the growing of salads in its new farm located between Avignon and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.
This new farm is currently on the conversion to organic farming and will be certified in July 2020. To guarantee the highest quality and freshness for its customers, this new farm is in the immediate vicinity of the packing station and the shipping platform.
In both conventional and organic formats, the packaging can be adapted to all requests: Ifco, Ifco black, Europool, mixed packages, Flowpack and Flowpack mixed, pouches. Packaging station is certified IFS Food v 6.1 — higher level.
Synergy and sustainability: CRISP varieties
Idyl has selected the best sources for its complete range of crisp lettuces. The crops are spread over three zones at different altitudes in south-eastern Spain to guarantee the production of high-quality lettuce 52 weeks a year. As soon as the lettuce is harvested, it is placed in refrigerated trucks and transported to the nearest packaging site. The sites are located as close as possible to the fields to ensure rapid refrigeration. The lettuce is then transferred to high-performance bag-ging lines. Sustainable agriculture, quality and food safety: Idyl upholds the most demanding values and standards at every level to guarantee a range of fresh lettuces and irreproachable service.
