With more than 22,000 attendees from across the world — buyers, brokers, distributors, exporters, and brokers — PEI Berries Ltd. representatives say they made some connections and received nothing but positive feedback about Pure Blueberries fruit puree.
While the company continues to bring their product to international markets, the makers of Pure Blueberries fruit puree will continue to keep costs low here on Prince Edward Island.
PEI Berries Ltd. has dropped the price on its nutritionally potent pure blueberry puree in an effort to produce a quality health food that the average person can afford.
Each bottle of Pure Blueberries fruit puree contains five servings of pure P.E.I. blueberries.
Field project manager, Bradford Rooney, says, “Our Pure Blueberries product contains nothing but whole, wild blueberries. We add nothing — no water, sugar, flavours, colours, or preservatives. Wild blueberries don’t need anything added to them to make them delicious.”
PEI Berries Ltd. uses whole blueberries to provide consumers with the greatest nutritional benefit of the fruit’s seeds, skin, and juice. Since wild blueberries have more antioxidants than cultivated berries, Pure Blueberries fruit puree has tremendous health benefits. The process used to create the Pure Blueberries fruit puree occurs in a closed system at low temperatures to protect the antioxidants from coming into contact with heat, friction, and oxygen, which are detrimental to the nutrients in the fruit.
PEI Berries Ltd. office manager, Colleen Stevenson, uses the product every day and never tires of its fresh taste.
She says, “I love to stir the Pure Blueberries puree into my yogurt in the morning. It’s great in smoothies, salad dressings, and just eaten on its own. People love that it’s healthy and easy to eat. It’s a great way to get some antioxidants into your kids.”
Pure Blueberries is available at a number of retailers on P.E.I.
