Guide helps boost sales throughout National Blueberry Month

July is National Blueberry Month, and the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council (USHBC) has packed the entire month with promotions to drive blueberry sales and pique consumer interest to Grab a Boost of Blue.

The group developed a step-by-step guide to help industry stakeholders and marketers capitalize on the nationwide promotion and enhance marketing efforts to engage audiences during this key period.
