Harvesting Blackcurrants in New Zealand

It’s another Blackcurrant harvesting time in New Zealand!

In this video produced by Mountain Edge Video Production, Vitality™ New Zealand’s Director Jim Grierson shows the process of harvesting one of three blackcurrant varieties (suitable for BC extract production) grown in New Zealand: Ben Ard.

According to research carried out by Plant & Food Research, Ben Ard has the highest levels of anthocyanins among all blackcurrant varieties found in the market today. Hence, Ben Ard is Vitality™ New Zealand‘s top choice of Blackcurrant variety to be used in all of its products.

We thank Bruce and Mandy Hamilton for allowing us to film the entire operation at their farm in Lakeside Leeston, Canterbury (January 2018).
