USHBC sponsored a visit of TV and magazine journalists to Portland Oregon this summer and it has really helped bridge the information gap between our two countries.
Editors visited farms, packing facilities, further processors and a major blueberry candy producing company called Moonstruck. A highlight was a visit to Voodoo Donuts in Portland and the my favorite the Burning Boar Barbecue in St. Paul, Oregon. The editors have returned to China and are now educating their readers on the good-natured blueberry producers in the Pacific Northwest! This is good timing as the Chinese government evaluates market access for US blueberries.
