J&C Tropicals and the Mountains of Golden Berry

Author: The Head Fruit

As your partner, in tropical excellence, J&C Tropicals is committed to discovering and delivering exceptional tropical produce from around the world every day. And we have made the discovery of the decade! Three years ago, we channeled our inner Indiana Jones and started trekking through Ecuador in search of El Dorado, the legendary city of gold. Yes, we dream big. And now, we are proud to announce that we found it! Well, actually what we found hidden in the mountains, 3,000 feet above sea level, was the legendary GOLDENBERRY! 

Goldenberries have the highest oxygen radical absorbance capacity of any berry on the market—3x more than a cranberry and 2x that of a pomegranate. After a deep analysis, we learned that goldenberries are jam-packed with Vitamin A, Zinc, and carotene—giving carrots a run for their money. Berries, in general, are superfoods with powerful antioxidants that absorb free radicals, and the goldenberry has the strength to defeat these harmful radicals day in and day out. 

The goldenberry is grown and harvested year-round, which positions it to be a year-round staple. When you compare this to strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, the goldenberry has the goods to become the new heavyweight champion in the superfruit berries category. 

The farmer behind the Goldenberry is Denise Brito of Produtankay Farms. He first discovered the goldenberry while hiking through the mountains, speaking to locals and learning what they were eating. For the last 22 years, he has been perfecting his harvests with sustainable farming techniques. His commitment to farming aligns perfectly with J&C’s core capabilities of quality, variety, consistency, and innovation. J&C Tropicals has been distributing his goldenberries for the last three years. His product is certified as Kosher, Fairtrade, Global GAP, and Halal. His farm is also a B-Corp and a member of the Rainforest Alliance. Talk about being the golden child!
