Fearless Innovation and Passion Further the Promise of Premium Superfruits, 52-Weeks a Year
LOS ANGELES, February 5, 2024 – Agrovision, one of the world’s fastest growing producers and year-round suppliers of premium superfruits and the only large-scale berry company to claim 100% vertical integration, today announced that it is celebrating its 10th year as a company. In just a decade, Agrovision has become the third-largest grower of blueberries in Peru, capturing the leading position in the global premium blueberry market. Agrovision is also the principal exporter of premium Jumbo blueberries to North America and a primary blueberry exporter to China.
10 Years of Innovation
In 10 years, Agrovision has established the largest strategic farming operations for premium varietal blueberries in the U.S., Peru, Mexico and Morocco, establishing immediate access to major consumer markets, worldwide. Its global farming footprint, with complementary harvest seasons, support year-round supply while advanced agricultural technology brings to market new premium berry varietals that offer a reliably higher quality.
“By identifying specific global microclimates that align with new superfruit genetics, Agrovision is providing the market with more resilient fruit, a higher level of supply certainty and less complexity,” said co-founder and executive chairman Steve Magami. “Research shows that, more than ever before, consumers are becoming more health-conscious. Our premium superfruits – with bigger berries, superior flavor, more crunch and all-natural health benefits – are perfectly positioned to capture this consumer-driven opportunity. As we celebrate our 10-year anniversary, Agrovision continues to marry innovation and passion to deliver on its promise of a reliably consistent better berry for the world.”
10 Years of Bringing the World a Better Berry
Agrovision has invested more than $350 million in its operations in the last six years, with plantings of premium varietals accelerating each year. Fiercely independent, the company is executing on its next phase of growth with expansion planned throughout Asia as it advances its vision of becoming the world’s leading supplier of superfruits.
Agrovision partners with leading breeders to develop a broad portfolio of premium varietals to elevate the experience of eating berries and grow consumption; its technology partners are leaders in next-gen agriculture, AI and automation, and merge precision farming technologies with craftsmanship to reliably yield higher quality, superior taste, crunch and size, with resource efficiency.
Its newest offering for the European market, the award-winning new Pink Star® raspberry, is now being grown in Morocco and Mexico. The result of more than 100 years of breeding experience, Pink Star raspberries offer unparalleled flexibility in production, consistent supply, superior size and an exceptional “firm and melting” taste, paired with long shelf life.
