Here's how you harvest 80 million pounds of wild blueberries per year
Quebec blueberries: from local delicacy to international powerhouse.
Did you know that Canada is the world's largest producer and exporter of wild blueberries?
Each year, we produce 200 million pounds of the fruit, 80 million of which come from the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec. It's the biggest wild blueberry farm in Canada — maybe even the biggest worldwide. Companies like Quebec Wild Blueberries mechanically harvest, wash and package the antioxidant-rich berry, before shipping them to over 30 countries.
