National Blueberry Month kicks off
It’s not only National Blueberry Month — today, July 8, is National Blueberry Day! We’ve kicked off our celebrations by launching a new, custom, augmented reality filter on the USHBC Instagram account. Users can test out these blueberry-themed filters on their own Instagram page.

Efforts to promote blueberries in earned media have garnered coverage on USHBC partner and friend Chef George Duran featured his Nutella and blueberry quesadilla recipe on the site as a value-add based on our previous work together. Additionally, The Packer, Produce Blue Book, Perishable News and The Produce News highlighted our campaign efforts and the availability of our industry toolkit for assets and ideas to help sell blueberries all month.

New episode on “The Business of Blueberries”
Change is happening to the blueberry industry on multiple fronts. Listen to our new podcast episode as Soren Bjorn from Driscoll’s discusses the latest in consumer preferences, genetics, packaging, and more!
