According to Berries Australia Executive Director, Rachel Mackenzie, the abundance of quality fruit is due to excellent weather conditions in Australian growing regions.  “Warm, dry sunny days and cool nights for our growers mean that the consumer will be spoilt for choice in relation to finding great value blueberries over the next few weeks. This year's crop conditions have been more than ideal in growing the freshest and highest quality blueberries just in time for the warmer weather to hit.” This record crop totals to approximately 4.8 million punnets of Australian blueberries, weighing over 600 tonnes (or the equivalent of over 11 Harbour Bridges).

Rachel also said of the superfood berry “We are very lucky here in Australia to have an excellent climate to grow all types of berries. When the weather is kind to us like it has been this growing season, it is the perfect time of year for Australian blueberries to flourish to their full potential. This really makes for the freshest and most delicious blueberries for shoppers!”

Blueberries not only remain one of the most antioxidant-rich fruits in the world, but breaking research has revealed new benefits to add to the fruit’s growing nutritional accolades. Recent studies suggest that one serving of fresh blueberries every day may help contribute to normal blood pressure levels and help improve memory recall in children.

If you’re a blueberry lover, there is no better time than now to head into your local supermarket to stock up on great value fruit, with an influx of blueberries from local Aussie growers hitting shelves from today.
