A long heritage
The company originally founded in 1978, by Joe and Nick Barone, two Italian brothers from the Palermo region of Sicily, who had settled in the UK. Zenith Nurseries remains a family business, now run by their sons; Frank and Jack Barone the current directors of the company.
Originally, Zenith was a general produce grower, focusing on vegetables such as leeks and spring onions, which grow well in the Vale of Evesham. Around 30 years ago, Zenith moved into growing fine leaf salad and recently invested heavily in a new BRC AA accredited facility manufacturing Washed & Read to Eat Salads for processors, caterers and restaurants.
Customers can expect the finest UK baby leaf salad from our farms picked and packed with care and attention for our customers’ requirements in the Vale of Evesham. Expect high quality Spinach, Wild Rocket, Watercress, Pea shoots, Red Chard, Red Mizuna, Bulls Blood, Lambs Lettuce and also our delicious whole head lettuce, Fine Endive, Lollo Rosso, Lollo Biondo and Oakleaf.
Now in it’s 42nd year the Zenith Nurseries Ltd of today looks much different to its first incarnation. Through constant reinvestment in our facilities, infrastructure and people we have created an ideal environment to cope with the fast paced world of high quality produce supplies.
