About the Issue
The U.S. blueberry industry supports family farms, provides jobs and reaps economic impact for communities. However, blueberry farming is threatened.
Growers across the U.S., mostly small, family-run farms, have been the hardest hit by an influx in blueberry imports over several years, resulting in plummeting prices. Farmers are struggling to stay afloat as foreign imports infringe on U.S. harvesting windows.
Consumers deserve access to fresh, high-quality, and safe blueberries. Creating a level playing field in the domestic blueberry market will empower consumers to decide which product they want to choose; it weakens our country when we cannot produce our own food.
Blueberries provide millions of dollars of direct and indirect economic benefits to communities. If American blueberry growers are forced out of business, our farm communities suffer.
