Blueberries are among the most popular berries in Finland and Scandinavia. The Finnish nature provides the blueberries with unique growing conditions like clean air and lots of sunlight thanks to the midnight sun. Blueberries contain plenty of vitamins, antioxidants and polyphenols. They have been valued in Finland for generations for their natural sweetness and their health benefits. A true superberry.
