Roy and his Jarred Blueberries in Japan

 Nothing like seeing a friendly face when abroad.    Walking down the produce aisles in a Japanese store, saw this display of jarred blueberries from Oregon Berry Packing.  Note the promotional material with Roy Malensky and his two sons Jeff and Brian!   Japanese consumers look for a connection to their food supply, and local produce quite often contains information and photos of the farmers and the land they farm.    While standing with my iPad, I noticed two consumers pass, notice the sign and scoop up jars of the product.    Although this display was in the jam and jelly section -- the jarred product normally is positioned in the produce section near the fresh berries.
