About the product
Blueberries are easily one of nature's most perfect foods. Boosting a variety of health benefits, including cancer and age-fighting antioxidants, blueberries are one of our most favourite fruits. Baked into pies, tarts, sprinkled on ice cream, mixed into fresh yogurt or just eating eating them on their own, we adore their juicy sweetness.
