Viberi Organic NZ Blackcurrants

MORE2U brings you the Organic Viberi Blackcurrant product range including newly released products January 2017.

ViBeri organic Blackcurrants are grown in some of the world's best soils, South Canterbury, New Zealand.

South Canterbury is an ideal location to grow blackcurrants and red currants. Blackcurrants require a cold winter, a mild summer, good free draining soils and year round moisture. In these regards, the fertile alluvial plains of South Canterbury, along with the pure water from the majestic Southern Alps provides the ideal conditions for blackcurrants. Viberi organic blackcurrants and red currants are grown in an organic certified orchard next to Pleasant Point, two hours south of Christchurch.

The area is famous for its high quality Blackcurrants containing some of the highest levels of anthocyanins (a type of anti-oxidant) in the world. This is because of South Canterbury's unique mix of high sunlight hours, fertile soils and excellent rainfall. ViBeri New Zealand Limited grow the only significant ,commercial, organic crop of blackcurrants in New Zealand* and are proud of it. Going Organic was a big step but - in the words of grower Tony Howey - "It gives our buyers peace of mind and infuses the Blackcurrants with a richer taste." Tony is passionate about growing foods he knows taste great and keep people healthy!

It has long been known how many health benefits are packed inside a blackcurrant.  Combine this with ideal growing conditions, 100% organic certification and a passionate team committed to bringing you pure premium products, and you too will enjoy the vitality and vitamins of ViBeri!

Blackcurrants are packed full of nutrients, are known for their high level of vitamin C, are naturally loaded with antioxidants and taste delicious!

We don’t call them a superfood for nothing!
We call ViBERi organic blackcurrants a superfood because they contain extremely high levels of Vitamin C, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. If part of a healthy, varied diet they help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Our blackcurrants also contain anthocyanins, the compound that gives our
berries their rich dark purple colour.
