"New investments extend the blueberry acreage in northern Morocco"

Morocco is already a producing and exporting power in the global blueberry industry, and berries in general. Each year the country advances in its development, incorporating more producers to the crop and expanding its planted area with new and innovative projects, with large investments, taking advantage of access to new technologies, better varieties, and modern management systems.

Amine Bennani, president of the Moroccan Association of Producers of Red Fruits (Ampfr), comments that the blueberry season in Morocco produced higher volumes than last season, continuing the trend of the last five years, and highlights that the speed of growth of the planted area remains between 300 and 500 hectares per year.

Moroccan fruit enjoys a good reputation and is preferred by European consumers, because it is a high-quality fruit, and furthermore, these new projects are implemented on the basis of new and better varieties of blueberries offered by the plant breeding market, which will further reinforce the good prestige of the product.
