Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you wrap your cucumbers in plastic?

We wrap our English and Nordic cucumbers in recyclable plastic film to preserve their freshness for several days. This practice aims to reduce food waste by preventing cucumbers from deteriorating rapidly. We're always striving to do better, which is why we're actively looking for a more environmentally friendly solution that won't compromise the freshness of our vegetables.

How do you reduce your packaging’s environmental impact?

For our mini cucumbers, we were among the first to make the transition from styrofoam to cardboard trays, which are made from recycled materials and are 100% compostable and recyclable. The "Ok Biobased" certified plastic film wrapping the tray is also recyclable and contains a minimum of 40% material obtained from renewable energy sources. Finally, our shipping boxes are made from 100% recycled fiber.

Where do your vegetables grow?

Toundra vegetables are grown in greenhouses located in Saint-Félicien, Quebec, Canada. The greenhouses are designed to provide an optimal environment for growing fresh, crisp vegetables year-round.

What’s the best way to store cucumbers?
Toundra cucumbers should be stored in their original packaging in the refrigerator, at a temperature of 4°C (40°F), to retain their moisture and freshness. From the day they are picked, they can be stored up to 15 days this way.
Where to find your products?

Toundra vegetables are available in many grocery stores and supermarkets across Quebec, as well as in parts of Ontario and New Brunswick. Several companies also use our fresh vegetables in their recipes, so that their customers can benefit from 100% local produce. You can consult the complete list on the Where to Find Us page
