Provençale beauties French lettuce growers in Provence are hoping to win UK supermarket orders for new small variegated red and green variety called Rougette. They are linked through the region's marketing association, Les Belles Salades de Provence, which represents over 400 growers producing on 1,300 hectares. In the summer the area is the largest supplier to the French market, last year supplying over 128m heads of a wide range of varieties, of which 49m were exported to the rest of Europe. Despite the organisation's fragmented nature, it maintains it operates fully traceable systems covering the use of chemicals and pesticides. {{FRESH PRODUCE }}
