Driving Blueberry Innovation

When we started in 1988 blueberry products were few and limited to a small number of traditional categories. Now, check out the innovative new products and you will see blueberries in just about every corner of the supermarket. This includes emerging categories such as nutraceuticals, pet foods, natural cosmetics and others. Our goal is to stay ahead of the curve, drive blueberries into the "next big thing!" Blueberry FoodTech monitors new products and publishes a quarterly report on new products from around the world.

Check out the latest, and we can help provide product ideas, concepts and samples if you ask.
