Soft fruits from the Arctic

The Atlantberry project aims to lay the foundations for commercial soft fruit production in tunnels on Iceland, Greenland and the Faroes. The project is being carried out in collaboration with Njøs Næringsutvikling, SINTEF, Sognabær AS and Nora AS.

The first Icelandic raspberries arrived on the market this summer. The joker among the three producer countries is Greenland, which lies much further north than the other areas, and where the scientists are not quite sure whether production will be successful.
