Why is CRESSED. the best choice?

Opting for a salad over another meal is often considered the sustainable and healthy alternative. After all, it is usually composed of plant-based ingredients and has a good nutrient balance, right?

The individual ingredients, however, are often transported from far away or even abroad and need to be refrigerated to remain fresh, creating vast amounts of unnecessary carbon emissions. This doesn't have to be the case, as we grow our salad in Amsterdam. Using cress as a main component also means our salad has more nutrients than other salads.

If salad is considered the better, healthier or more sustainable choice, then CRESSED. is the best choice.

CRESSED. is a sustainable salad brand that was founded by the LocaLeaves Foundation in Amsterdam. It was created by a small, like-minded team with the goal of promoting healthy eating within our society and supporting of local products. The main intention of the brand is to provide fresh alternatives that will allow you to make the positive impact you want. Throughout the research and development stage, a perfect blend of leafy greens, vegetables, and dressing was created in order to assure high quality and amazing taste of the product.

Recently, CRESSED. presented its first sustainable salad that got a name - "UnbeLeafable Greens".
