New Zealand: Increasing consumption of blueberries Statistics published in December showed that New Zealanders consumed a record 8 million cups of blueberries worth more than NZD 30 million (17.6 million Euro) last season. That's an increase of 1.1 million punnets (+15.2%). The trade association of blueberry growers in New Zealand expects sales to increase even further this summer due to the corona crisis. 60% of the blueberries are exported to Australia and Asia.
