Polish blueberry producers promoting new harvesting standard

A new harvesting standard has been presented by Jaroslaw Bien of the Polish Berry Cooperative (PBC), Europe’s largest blueberry producer.

„We are promoting a new, higher standard. The blueberries are cooled almost immediately after the harvest, within no more than 30 minutes. This is a higher standard than is required by the world’s most demanding certifications. Thanks to this practice, the fruit’s freshness is preserved for longer,” affirms Jaroslaw Bien, a member of the GPO „Polish Berries”.
