Butterhead lettuce


In 2018, the REO Veiling will have supplied 40 million high-quality heads of lettuce to its buyers. Our lettuce is grown both outdoors and in greenhouses. In greenhouses, our growers grow lettuce in the ground and on water. This allows us to efficiently supply our buyers with delicious fresh lettuce all year round. The REO Veiling is pre-eminently one of the largest supplier of fresh Butterhead lettuce in Belgium. The REO Veiling is located in West-Flanders. Wes-Flanders by the Belgioan coast is a production-rich vegetable area because of its maritime climate, fertile soil, the craftmanship of local growers and the presence of modern systems for productions, sale and qualitychecs. Ideal factors that ensure high quality fresh fruit and vegetables, including Butterhead lettuce.
