Wish Farms offers organic blueberries

Plant City -- Wishnatzki Farms, a Florida-based grower-shipper, has announced the addition of pesticide residue-free blueberries to its produce offerings. 

Wish Farms is the only shipper in the country to have blueberries approved by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), a third party organization that certifies environmental and safety claims. 

"I believe pesticide residue-free blueberries will be embraced by consumers," said Gary Wishnatzki, president of Wish Farms.  "These berries will be more affordable than organics, which have a loyal following, but are too pricey for many customers.  This alternative to organics will appeal to a much larger audience."
