Jasper Wyman & Son (Wyman’s) has acquired the wild blueberry assets of Ellsworth, US-based Allen’s Blueberry Freezer.
The transaction includes 2,800 acres of wild blueberry land, ‘substantial’ freezing capacity and more than 50,000 square feet of cold storage.
Based in Milbridge, Maine, Wyman’s is a US grower, processor and marketer of wild blueberries, supplying the retail, ingredient and foodservice channels.
Wyman’s – which offers blueberries in frozen, juice, powdered and dried form – claims to have seen a significant increase in demand in recent years. The acquisition of the Allen’s assets is the latest in a series of moves to increase the company’s wild blueberry supply.
