Wirral Watercress established in 2005, is based in Childer Thornton on the Wirral Peninsula. As the name suggests, the main product of the business is watercress which is supplied to small independent greengrocers and the hotel/restaurant trade across the Wirral, west Cheshire and Merseyside from March until the end of December.
More recently Wirral Watercress has been providing local chefs with microsalads as well as the watercress. Both the peashoots and the watercress were commended in the North West Fine Foods Awards 2008 and Wirral Watercress was awarded Merseyside Producer of the Year 2008.
