Blueberries are a very popular fruit in Europe and the United States due to their high nutritional value, health benefits, and the convenience of being easily eaten. At Silver Valley Farm, we use the latest freezing technology to deliver freshly harvested frozen blueberries that contain all the flavor and nutrients to Japan. Currently, the demand for frozen foods is growing as more people cook at home. Last year, Silver Valley Farm launched a project called “Blueberry Life Lab” to bring high nutritional value blueberries closer to people, hoping that frozen blueberries would be more familiar to them. This site is the official content for Japan of Silver Valley Farm, and is positioned as a place to disseminate the activities of “Blueberry Life Lab”.
The site has recipes that propose new ways to use frozen blueberries, such as recipes recommended for lunch while working from home and recipes recommended for drinking at home, in line with the new Japanese lifestyle where cooking at home has increased. Contents such as introduction of SNS posts actually made and introduction of blueberry nutrition are posted.
In the future, we plan to develop collaborations with various companies and organizations in Japan through “Blueberry Life Lab”, and we plan to enhance the content.
