Why is some veg muddy?

You may find that some of the veg in your box is muddy. Don’t panic! There are good reasons for this. The main one is that there’s plenty of evidence to suggest that muddy veg keeps for longer than washed veg, reducing waste and keeping your food fresher. The process of washing the veg also bumps up the price, so we get more for our money by buying muddy veg!
