About VanDyk’s By Nature:
Casey and Henrica Van Dyk and their family have been harvesting wild blueberries in Nova Scotia for almost 20 years. In mid-90s, they began thinking about a convenient way for their customers to benefit from the incredible nutrition and health benefits of wild blueberries all year round. The task of producing a high-quality juice began.
The VanDyks’ goal was to produce a juice that consistently retains the health properties of fresh blueberries and is also safe and shelf-stable.
By partnering with a team of agricultural scientists, they were able to develop a proprietary process for pure wild blueberry juice production that delivers exceptional quality, purity and taste.
The Van Dyk’s have enjoyed more than 50 years of partnership in both marriage and business, and are very proud to share their Pure Wild Blueberry juice with you!
