The demands of the blueberry industry are higher and leading to the use of newer varieties to improve berry quality. Dole Berry Company is supporting growers on the development of new varieties as they are one of the key drivers to success. Global Plant Genetics gave us access to the breeding program we were looking for. Their experience in intellectual property as well as their desire to add value to this developing business were assets. We look forward to making our relationship with GPG stronger.-Oscar Vargas, Dole Berry Company
