They grow and supply various types of lettuce under the brand Pura Hoja, both pot and pre-cut packaged. Lettuce is grown all year round in a sustainable way on water.

An indirect fired gas heater with horizontal air flow, creates the possibility to connect ducts to the heaters for a better heat distribution in the greenhouse.

Achieving an optimal climate stands or falls with the use of the right techniques for heating and ventilation. A uniform climate ensures that Hidropónicos La Cruz can grow top quality lettuce products that meet the highest international quality standards.


CAF45 recirculation fans have been installed to achieve a homogeneous climate.

Holland Heater and Royal Brinkman, in close consultation with Hidropónicos La Cruz, have drawn up a climate plan for the greenhouses. From the wide range of heating and ventilation products the P-series, an indirect fired gas heater with horizontal air flow, was chosen. This creates the possibility to connect ducts to the heaters for a better heat distribution in the greenhouse. In addition, CAF45 recirculation fans have been installed to achieve a homogeneous climate. With the upcoming delivery, the entire company of 43,000 square meter is equipped with the smartest solutions for climate control. Under these optimal conditions, Hidropónicos La Cruz is able to deliver excellent Pura Hoja products on a daily basis.
