I love it when a plan comes together.
We have seen interest in blueberries in Colombia for the past few years.
Whenever we exhibit at Miami, we always meet Colombian importers and food processors with interest. This country of 49 million is on the rise. With an end of a civil war which has hindered the economy since the mid-1960s — Colombia is on the move.
Colombians love blueberries. They have a native species in the wild and have been developing a small domestic crop to feed demand.
Colombian food processors are on the leading edge of new product development with blueberries. Since USHBC started work in-country two years ago, we have seen developments of new blueberry products including, baking, snacks and confectionery.
Dried blueberries and ingredient solutions such as flakes and powders are used in the food industry and poly-bag frozen blueberries can be found in supermarkets nationwide!
On September 7, 2018 USHBC held it’s first annual Dynamo New Product Award for innovation.
