Tenderstem® is a hugely successful, tightly-controlled licenced brassica variety. Growers must have a licence to grow it and packers to pack it and sell to retailers in UK.
We exclusively hold the licence for the food-service sector in the UK which means we can buy directly from licenced growers in UK, Spain, Morocco and Kenya. We can also exclusively pack Tenderstem® for the UK food-service sector. This brings us closer to the grower and to the team at Tenderstem® who we work closely with to promote the brand directly to chefs, particularly through social media.
Tenderstem® broccoli is a culinary sensation that needs no introduction. Originating in Japan in 1993, it has captivated taste buds worldwide with its exceptional flavour, versatility, and health benefits. With a unique long stem and entirely edible floret, Tenderstem® broccoli can be enjoyed both raw and cooked, making it a favourite among chefs and consumers. Its sweet, delicate, nutty flavour adds a delightful crunch to any dish.
Beyond its culinary appeal, Tenderstem® broccoli boasts a remarkable nutritional profile. Rich in vitamins A and C, it promotes healthy skin and overall well-being. It also provides a source of potassium, which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure, and contains manganese for the maintenance of normal bones. In other words, Tenderstem® broccoli is not only delicious but also a healthy choice for your dining pleasure.
