After years of negotiations, the first blueberries grown in the US have arrived in Mainland China. The US Highbush Blueberry Council (USHBC) and fruit retailer Pagoda held a joint ceremony to celebrate the landmark. 

The blueberries in Pagoda’s three-pallet inaugural shipment were grown by Norris Farms in the Umpqua River Valley in Oregon and sent to China by air freight. They were supplied by Superfresh Growers, based in Washington State.
