Over the next few weeks, British Columbia’s cranberries will be seen floating in the bogs around the lower mainland and Vancouver Island.
“We are looking forward to a safe and successful cranberry harvest for all our growers,” says Kalpna Solanki, chair of the BC Cranberry Marketing Commission.
Most of the BC cranberry growers belong to the Ocean Spray Cooperative. About 95 per cent of BC’s crop is turned into Craisins because of the high quality of colour and firmness. The remainder of the crop is sold fresh.
One of the newest cranberry vendors is Hopcott Farms in Pitt Meadows as well as The Bog at Riverside Cranberries and Glen Valley Cranberries in Langley, Yellow Point Cranberries in Ladysmith, Bremner Cranberries, Pacific Cranberry or Maybog Farms in Richmond. These vendors can be found here: https://www.bccranberries.com/sellers.
The BC Cranberry Marketing Commission has been a part of BC cranberry farming since 1968. The BCCMC regulates in any and all respects, the transportation, processing, packing, storage and marketing of any variety of cranberries grown in the province of British Columbia.
