Nordic power food

Northern berries are the best source of polyphenols in Finland.


  • The cold, Nordic winter keeps the forests clean and healthy.

  • To protect themselves against the cold environment, Nordic berries create polyphenols with the help of the midnight sun during the short summer season.

  • Berries ripen in clean, wild forests where they develop their intense and very unique flavour.

  • Many nutrients locate only in the skin and seeds of the berries. For this reason, it’s important to consume whole berries.

The northern habitat

The northern habitat is a small part of the world largely consisting of sea and mountainous terrain. Seventy per cent of the surface area of Finland consists of forests. These form most of the suitable substrate for berries growing in the wild; old forests that provide enough natural nutrients and pollinators, clean air and water, as well as trees living in symbiosis with the berries.

Part of folklore

As nourishment and natural medicine, berries are an important part of Finnish folklore. They are also a very important source of nourishment for many animals. For example, a bear will eat up to 1,000 kg (2,204 lbs) of berries for its protection and bodily reserves before hibernating for six to seven months.


Polyphenols are plant metabolites that protect plants against things like various pathogens and harmful UV radiation from the sun. Therefore, plants form polyphenols to be their defence mechanisms. Polyphenols also contribute to plant colour and taste; for instance, bitterness. Indeed, you could say the darker the colour of the fruit or berry, the more polyphenol compounds it contains.

The more colour, the better

Berries contain plenty of polyphenols; the most important ones are anthocyanins and other flavonoids. Anthocyanins are water-soluble flavonoids that bring the berry its red, blue or black colour. The darker the berry, the more anthocyanins it contains. By comparison with highbush blueberries, wild bilberries contain four to five times as many flavonoids.
Wild Bilberry The wild bilberry is a perennial dwarf shrub approximately 30 cm (11.81 in) high. It typically grows in coniferous forests. Some of its substrates include slightly shady woods, northern slopes, the edges of clear-felled areas and the banks of forest ponds. The bilberry harvesting period lasts from the end of July to the beginning of September

Whole berries, including the skin and seeds, in a form that is tasty and easy to enjoy right away or take along with you. Berrie corresponds with the four main trends of the food industry: it’s wholesome, it has good flavour, it’s easy to use, and it’s natural.

All the ingredients used in the preparation of the product are listed on the ingredients list by quantity in descending order. In addition to berries, the product contains berry and fruit purées and juices, water, sweetening apple extract to balance the acidity of the berries, citric fibre to give the product structure, as well as citric acid and potassium sorbate to ensure the product’s safety. Berrie has optimised the number of berries and terrific taste for each flavour. In other words, each kind of Berrie contains enough berries to achieve the best flavour.

Yes! Berrie provides an excellent way to get your kids to enjoy their daily berries.

We use berries from the Northern growth area and prefer domestic. in the Northern growth area, the wild berries are uniform in nutritional value. Availability determines the place of acquisition. The degree of domestication varies according to the harvest seasons.

We use clean high-quality raw ingredients and observe good hygiene and high-quality preparation methods in our production. Our production is FSSC-22000-certified. Rapid heating, the addition of only a small quantity of preservatives and the use of protective atmosphere ensure the shelf life of the product. The preservative used is potassium sorbate E202, which effectively prevents the growth of yeasts, moulds, and bacteria. A similar type of natural preservative is sorbic acid which is found in rowan berries.

Protective (or modified) atmosphere is used in food packages to improve the shelf life of the product. The modification lowers the amount of oxygen in order to slow down the growth of aerobic organisms and prevent oxidation reactions. The removed oxygen is replaced with nitrogen and carbon dioxide.

It is eight months following completion of the product. The product can be stored at room temperature, but storing in a cool place maintains the product’s sensory characteristics. After opening, Berrie can be stored in a refrigerator for about a week.

Pasteurised apple extract prepared from apples.

There are plenty of apples available for raw ingredients. It is grown everywhere, and it is very suitable for concentrating into extract. Apple extract does not contain any substance which may cause intolerance.

By legal definition, Berries do not contain any allergens. Citric fibre is pure fibre extracted from lemon peel, and it does not cause symptoms to persons with citrus allergy. It brings structure to the product and acts as a fibre supplement. The lemon juice used for the Wild Bilberry and Berrie +Fibre may cause intolerance symptoms to persons with serious citrus allergy. The apple sweetener does not cause intolerance symptoms. The apple sauce and apple juice used as ingredients for Sea Buckthorn and Berrie +Fibre may cause intolerance symptoms to persons with apple allergy. All Berries are milk-free, lactose-free and gluten-free.

Berrie+ Fiber contains this soluble fibre, derived from maize. One container of 100ml contains more fibre than a bowlful of oatmeal porridge. Read more:

Berries are completely of vegetal origin and therefore are suitable for vegans.

There is a plastic lid with an opening in Berrie to ease the on-the-go consumption. It is easy to drink from the cup e.g., when walking. You can also hand it to small children as you do not need to worry about it spilling all over. If you have the feeling that some Berrie is left under the lid, you can pour a little of water into the cup and enjoy the rest of the Berrie.

The lid of the Berrie container is aluminium, which is recycled as metal. The container has two layers: the cardboard layer can be teared off along the tear line and recycled as cardboard; the plastic container and lid belong to plastic recycling. If you don’t have a recycling bin for plastic, it can be recycled as burnable waste. The cardboard in the 3-litre bag-in-box can be recycled as cardboard, and the bag itself goes to plastic recycling.

The most important nutrients in berries are minerals, fibres, vitamins, fatty acids, and polyphenols. Nordic berries are unique for their particularly high polyphenol content. Polyphenols, which are strong antioxidants, aren’t very sensitive to heat, and in some cases, heating can even release and enhance some polyphenols, which in turn increases their biological benefit. According to our analysis, approximately 80–90% of the polyphenols remain after pasteurization. The consistency of healthy unsaturated fatty acids, fibres, and minerals remains unchanged. Some of the vitamins break down during heating and over time.

When it comes to the wild berries of the Nordic forests, the only sustainable and cost-effective method of picking is by hand. This way, we can ensure the high quality of the berries and the preservation of nature. Developing a mechanical picking method would require vast research and advancement of technology before it would be sustainably feasible on a large scale due to remote forests in hard-to-reach, wild, and delicate terrain.

In Finland, two companies are currently under investigation for unfair activity, but the investigation is still ongoing and no one has been found guilty yet. We have zero tolerance for employee abuse. We acquire our raw ingredients strictly from companies that disclose their personnel matters

"Wild berries growing in Finland can be regarded as organic thanks to multiple factors: Natural growing: Forest berries grow in natural state environments, away from industrial agricultural production and the use of chemicals. They are not exposed to artificial fertilizers or pesticides. Scarce human interaction: Majority of forest berries grow in areas that have scarce or non-existent human presence. This minimises the risk of chemical contamination or other human-based environmental effects. Chemical-free: Forest berries are safe from chemicals, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers, which basically means that they are organic. They receive their nutrients from natural sources and the surrounding soil. Biodiversity: Forest berries grow in a diverse ecosystem with many different plants and animals. This greatly increases the quality and nutritious value of forest berries. No additives: Forest berries require no additives, preservatives, or artificial growth stimulants. They develop with the help of Mother Nature's own processes"

"In production, the berries get squashed, after which they take up “less space”: the shell and seeds break, and the containing water is released. We also add some water. The amount of additional water needed depends on the berry, since some berries contain more water than others. For example, fresh wild bilberries are about 80% water. So to answer the question, nothing is removed, and for instance, there are 140 whole berries in Wild Bilberry Berrie container with every part of the berry included (counted amount: 139)."

Freight companies see Berrie containers as space-consuming and heavy. Our goal is to offer a product along with a distribution model where consumers around the world have the possibility to obtain unique Nordic wild berries effortlessly and as cost-effective as possible. When consumers purchase Berrie products directly from our factory, the price won’t be inflated by additional costs and margins of intermediaries, and no additional freight or storage will be used. All in all, when you purchase from our online shop, you will get the product for the most competitive price, fast, and environmentally friendly.
