About us



Welcome to Zenith Nurseries, where tradition meets innovation in the heart of the Vale of Evesham. Established in 1978 by Joe and Nick Barone, two enterprising brothers hailing from the picturesque Palermo region of Sicily, Zenith has flourished from its humble beginnings as a general produce grower to become a beacon of excellence in the world of fine leaf salad.

Guided by the Barone family's unwavering commitment to quality and their deep-rooted agricultural heritage, Zenith embarked on a journey of growth and transformation. Today, under the visionary leadership of Franco and Giacomo Barone, sons of the company's founders and its current directors, Zenith stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of familial stewardship and innovation.

Over four decades of dedicated cultivation and refinement, Zenith has evolved into a premier supplier of Washed & Ready to Eat Salads, serving discerning processors, caterers, and restaurants with the finest UK baby leaf salad meticulously picked and packed to meet the exacting standards of our customers.

Our commitment to excellence extends beyond mere production; it is ingrained in every facet of our operation. From the verdant fields where our premium spinach, wild rocket, cress, pea shoots, and a kaleidoscope of other fine leaf varieties flourish under the Worcestershire sun, to our state-of-the-art BRC AA* accredited facility, where cutting-edge technology meets time-honored craftsmanship to ensure the utmost in freshness and quality.

At Zenith, we pride ourselves on our diverse range of offerings, from the delicate sweetness of spinach to the robust flavours of red chard and bull's blood, and everything in between. Our portfolio also includes whole head lettuces, such as fine endive, lollo rosso, lollo biondo, and oakleaf, each hand-selected and nurtured to perfection.

As we celebrate our 46th year in business, Zenith Nurseries Ltd stands as a shining example of resilience, adaptability, and unwavering dedication to excellence. Our continued success is a testament to the enduring values instilled by our founders and the tireless efforts of our dedicated team.

Join us as we embark on the next chapter of our journey, where tradition and innovation converge to redefine the standards of high-quality produce.
