Polish blueberry growers set 30 minute cooling standard
The “30 minutes” standard is one of a variety of steps undertaken in order to further improve the processes of storing and packing blueberry fruit. Another important step is the “7 Rules of Good Harvest” which are instrumental in the training of pickers and raising even further the quality of the excellent hand picking which Polish farms are renowned for.
Those new standards were developed on farms belonging to the Polish Berry Cooperative, which was created by 3 leading Polish blueberry producer groups. Together, they are the No. 1 producer of blueberries in Europe. Blueberries are picked and pre-cooled according to the “30 minutes” standard in 3 regions in Poland – near Lublin, Rzeszów and in Wielkopolska.
Polish Berry Cooperative members work according to the highest production standards and use modern equipment at their packhouses, to produce not only great tasting, but also great quality fruit, able to withstand shipping and distribution challenges, to such distant markets as Southeast Asia.
Although the temperatures were unexpectedly low this year, there is only minimal frost damage on the farms. The members of the Cooperative have been consistently investing in frost protection infrastructure, such as tunnels, wind mills, overhead sprinklers and fogging machines.
The upcoming season is shaping up to be quite promising, this year PBC is hoping to reach new markets in Asia and expand their reach in Europe.
