We are the leading UK supplier of top quality tomatoes to many of the major retailers. Focus is on special varieties with extra taste. We supply around 55% of all UK grown organic tomatoes.

We test and compare around 300 different varieties of tomato every year. The very best are further evaluated in commercial trials and the best of these are introduced to the retailers.
Wight Salads are organically certified to the highest level by the UK Soil Association and are committed to growing the best organic tomatoes available anywhere in the world.

We own nursery sites in the UK, Spain and Portugal. We also have close partnership arrangements in Holland, Israel, Canary Islands, Spain, Italy and France.

We have now completed an extra seven hectares of brand new, state-of-the-art glass in Portugal. We have also invested in state of the art IT management through the company to give us more time to focus on growing.
As a company we are committed to growing the best tasting tomatoes from the best environment.
We are an industry leader in the organic growing of tomatoes. We have recently opened a brand new, computer-controlled compost production facility costing almost £1 million. This allows us to create specialist compost mixes that provide optimum growing conditions for our crops.
We focus on techniques that are in sympathy with the environment. All raw materials are recycled as far as is possible. New sustainable methods of energy production are under investigation, and designed to maximise the utilisation of waste products and minimise the use of fossil fuels.
Wight Salads packing operations are centralized in Chichester. They feature the very best quality of building, machinery and equipment. Temperature control is maintained throughout the packing process, ensuring top quality products being delivered to our customers.
Wight Salads are pleased to work alongside AquAid to aid projects in Africa that install and supply Elephant Pumps for clean water to local communities.
