From 1535 until 1821, during the Viceroyalty of New Spain, the El Bajio region was known as the Breadbasket of Mexico. Today, the region is known for its agriculture, leading Mexico’s production of lettuce and potato crops.
We began growing lettuce in El Bajio, Mexico in 2006 to supplement our supply of fresh lettuces in the winter. By adding this growing region, we were been able to cut 623,584 transportation miles in 2010. Decreasing our trucking miles means we can deliver our fresh lettuces quicker, and reducing our carbon footprint is good for the environment.
