Chicory

The leaf crop chicory is grown in the dark, since the leaves turn green in the light.

Chicory can be eaten both raw and cooked. In the past chicory had a somewhat bitter taste, but today’s chicory varieties have little or no bitterness.

Chicory is a two year crop. In the first year, the roots are grown by sowing. The harvested roots are placed in trays (in the dark). This is done in trays with running water. A chicory crop then emerges from this in 3 to 4 weeks.

We work with carefully selected chicory growers. By shipping direct from the grower, we supply the freshest possible product.

Our growers have a Global Gap certification.
