T&A's Artisan lettuce perfect for Fourth of July celebrations

ta2As the Fourth of July approaches and consumers are shopping for their parties and cookouts, Tanimura & Antle's field-packed heart-healthy Artisan lettuce is sure to catch their eyes.

The packaging process for T&A's Artisan lettuce offers superior freshness and protection as a direct response to consumer preferences and retailer requests.

"This product has been field harvested and packed in a specially designed clamshell for freshness, then carefully packed in a carton and palletized," said Brian Antle. "From the field the lettuce is transported as quickly as possible to our facility to be cooled before being loaded onto a refrigerated trailer to transport to retail locations."

Each Artisan lettuce four-count clamshell will make at least eight side salads or four main dish salads. Unlike other lettuce blends, Artisan lettuce won't wilt when dressed, so consumers can choose the dressing that suits their final salad creation.

The convenience of this item makes it perfect for holiday get-togethers, and the company's lettuce is grown entirely on U.S. family farms, making T&A's verdant fields of lettuce as American as amber waves of grain.

Artisan lettuce is certified as a heart-healthy food by the American Heart Association. Packages feature the Heart Check mark, which easily identifies it as a sensible food choice in an overall heart-healthy diet.

Tanimura & Antle's Artisan lettuce is a select seed variety that has been carefully chosen for premium flavor, quality and variety. It includes three different petite whole head lettuce in both red and green varieties.
