This is Tom Payne's place to share the latest information on food
processing and export. We keep it simple as we are continally
adding information on a daily basis!

the global food industry.

with blueberries for more than 25 years and hold a vast resource of
technical information for current and new users of blueberries. Download

you are stumped, give us a call and we are on it!
In the Field Action!
Each year we attend food
industry expositions around the country and the world. This
includes national and international Food Technology meetings as well as
suppliers meetings regionally. Check out our schedule and let us
connect. We have more than 25 activities scheduled in the
field this year, so let us connect!
Driving Blueberry Innovation. When we started
in 1988 blueberry products were few and limited to a small number of
traditional categories. Now, check out the innovative new
products and you will see blueberries in just about every corner of the
supermarket. This includes emerging categories such as nutraceuticals,
pet foods, natural cosmetics and others. Our goal is to stay ahead
of the curve, drive blueberries into the "next big thing!"
Blueberry FoodTech monitors new products and publishes a quarterly
report on new products from around the world. Check out the
latest, and we can help provideproduct ideas, concepts and samples if
you ask. <1st
