Picking berries

Berries picked for sale in Finland

Berries are bought by factories that refine berries, agents that resell them, and buyers in groceries, at the marketplaces and at resting places along the roads. Many 4H associations resell wild growing berries and other products to the factories that refine and use them. The most common way is to sell the berries uncleansed. Some buyers also buy cleansed berries.
