ブルーベリーの産地についての解答です。弊社「有機ドライブルーベリー」に使用の有機ブルーベリーはカナダ・ケベック州産でございます。農場の特定までは致しかねますが、供給元はレスブリュートミスタッシニ社で有機認証(Ecocert QAI)を取得しております。最終加工地はアメリカです。
This Blueberry was from Quebec. Supplier is Les Bleuets Mistassini. in US, and exported to Japan.

An expert told us this should be most likely from Chernobyl accident which affected broad area of Northern Europe and Canada. 


So we tested all our product which contained some ingredients from Canada. The test results are as below.

Cs 137 was detected in Organic Blueberry sauce and Maple syrup.
