In fresh-cut based on leafy vegetables there is a need to carefully consider
seed/cultivar choice as factors as waste and shelf-life become more
pronounced when fresh produce undergoes processing. When a producer is
responsible for all the steps from selection of the cultivars to processing and
harvesting, and delivers directly to a supermarket, specific cultivar elements
are more controllable compared to when fresh produce is bought/imported
from other sources. Fresh-cut based on leafy vegetables is an emerging
vegetable format in Denmark, yet, still in the very beginning, while in other
European countries this segment is advanced and the supply chain
compartmentalized. Parallels in respect to chain structures are therefore at
present mainly drawn from other leafy fresh produce productions. Present
approaches for securing year round supply of quality leafy vegetables were
identified through structured interviews in the supply chain and the
emphasis and choice of seed source in these productions are highlighted.
Changes in consumer behavior towards more and more convenience food
might further increase consumption of these product formats, however,
consumer demand for local and/or organic produce raises the need to
enhance the supply availability. At present only a very limited assortment of
organic fresh-cut products is available for Danish consumers. Without import
through commercialized chains, the selection of organic fresh-cut produce
would be close to zero.
