How We're Growing Your Business

Increased
Demand

Blueberries in manufactured goods increases demand for blueberries among food tech manufacturers, an important market. It also increases demand among consumers by encouraging them to buy more products that use blueberries, like muffins, energy bars, and yogurts!

New Sales
Opportunities

We have been representing the blueberry industry at trade shows in the U.S. and internationally to inspire food manufacturers to make products that optimize blueberries and assist with product formulation.

Encouraging Blueberries’ Use In New Products

Blueberry waffles and blueberry yogurt are old family favorites, but the USHBC goes beyond the basics in our manufacturer campaigns to encourage blueberries in new types of products, even dog food and cosmetics!

The Real Blueberries Seal

We have nearly 100 manufacturers who have signed up and meet the requirements to put the Real Seal on their packages so consumers know when they are purchasing real blueberries in the products they choose to eat.
