I am just back from my first visit to Australia and was captivated by this blueberry-loving nation!
Fine Foods Australia September 16-18 2015
>Supermarket shelves are stocked with large displays of fresh blueberries during the Southern Hemisphere production season.
>Australian companies feature frozen, dried and other blueberry ingredients in dozens of innovative and trendsetting products. They use adequate amounts because their consumers are picky and want to see the blueberries!
>Buyers, end users and consumers see North America blueberries as a clean and safe source of blueberries.
Australia is a long-time trading partner with US blueberry producers and we are grateful for this business. In the future, we hope to also gain access for fresh blueberries to meet the current and future demand and to keep blueberries in the stores and on the shelves year round!
