Choosing the best growing conditions to sow
the seeds of success.

In order to be able to offer blueberries with the highest quality standards and ensure a production volume capable of meeting the needs of the market, JSC Berries thoroughly assessed a number of spaces that could accommodate its production and chose lands that offered excellent conditions. 

Those lands were carefully prepared in order to optimize production, at both the qualitative and the quantitative level.
