According to a press release, lef Farms (pronounced “leaf”) has debuted Fusion, a new spring mix. It is a blend of baby red and green leaf lettuces.
“Our goal was to introduce a new mix that captures the hearts and taste buds of those looking for something simple but something that still carries a unique flavor and texture profile they can’t find in an everyday mix”, said Henry Huntington, lef’s President and CEO.
Similar to the approach lef took in the creation of its Smooth and Spice mixes, lef performed an extensive analysis of the lettuce market. And what it uncovered was a sizable base that’s looking for a more straightforward lettuce option. But, true to form, lef added its own flair by melding soft, red buttery Bibb lettuce with a crisper and more substantial Romaine variety, resulting in the distinctive combination found in lef’s new Fusion.
Available in 4 oz. fuchsia-labeled clamshells, Fusion can be found, along with lef's Smooth and Spice blends, at grocers all across the Northeast. For retailers, Fusion comes in an 8-pack case containing 32 oz. of lef-y goodness. And for food service, our 2 x 1.5 lb.-pack case amasses 3 lbs. of fresh Fusion in clear bags.
