Here is the team responsible for kick starting the Indian market for frozen US Blueberries.
Middle: Dinesh Shinde of Anusaya Fresh India Pvt. Ltd. in Mumbai. Dinesh is a fourth-generation fruit seller and a major player in the Indian fresh and now frozen fruit business. He is flanked by Don Vanderwerken from Mississippi who now works with Dinesh on sourcing and Tim Goggans a third generation blueberry grower from Mississippi and member of the Miss-Lou Cooperative.
This dynamic team worked with the USHBC on an initial sampling shipment to familiarize the Indian food industry. They have followed through to continue providing frozen US blueberries to the Indian market and the future looks bright!
A special cow bell salute to this “Mississipi Masala” Team!
