Why Grow Blueberries?
Blueberries is one of the fastest growing segments of the fruit industry in Australia. At present, 80% of Australia's blueberries are grown in NSW.
As consumers become more educated about where their food comes from, they are more likely to choose locally grown produce, which creates an opportunity for WA growers to produce local blueberries.
Breeding of early and late varieties has enabled blueberries to be available for 10 months of the year. The large geographical range of WA allows growers to take advantage of this and supply WA grown fruit almost all year round.
Mountain Blue Farms are highly regarded as world leaders in terms of the quality and yield of their blueberries. Their fruit is grown around the world. The Eureka™ Breeding Program has resulted in bigger fruit with an excellent flavour and long shelf life.
Mountain Blue Farms have partnered with Coles Supermarkets and received Coles "Supplier of the Year" award for their Eureka™ Blueberry Program.
Parkerville Berry Company have partnered with Mountain Blue farms and Mercer Mooney to bring the amazing Eureka™ Blueberry Program to Western Australia.
Eureka™ is backed by a social media presence, including a website, Facebook and Instagram.
