Chinese Bluberry, The New Alternative for Bilberry By Changsha Nutramax Inc.

In the past few years, Bilberry products have received great attention due to benefit for vision function and their safety profile. The bilberry market has been growing rapidly, from annual sales of USD $200 ~ 300 million to one of the top 20 herbal products in global market within just a few years...

Due to the acceptance of Bilberry in the marketplace and the rapidly increased volume of sales, particularly for European Bilberry, its raw material price has increased to a current EU $4/Kg from EU $1/Kg in 1998. Accordingly, the price for its extract has also jumped from EU $80/Kg to $650/Kg, and has led to a “sold out” situation due to early procurement in 2007.
In order to fill the supply gap due to great market performance of European Bilberry, Changsha Changsha Nutramax Inc. one of the star enterprises of plant extract industry in China, is willing to work towards gaining bigger market share for Chinese products. After three months of intensive research and analysis within our R&D department, we found that the Chinese bilberry species –Blueberry, has a similar component and safety profile as that of European bilberry species. The comparison is as follows:
