Will you join us in our mission to take back control of what we eat and how food is produced?

The last years and impending climate crisis have shown us more clearly than ever that health and sustainability go hand-in-hand.

That’s why we started ViBERi on our organic orchard in 2011, developing an exciting range of blackcurrant products without any shortcuts like synthetic fertilisers, pesticides or artificial additives.

We always get surprised feedback about how delicious our blackcurrants are. But more than that, our customers tell us that ViBERi keeps them feeling good.

We don’t call them a superfood for nothing!

New Zealand organic blackcurrants are known for their remarkable health benefits. They're most famous for extremely high levels of Vitamin C, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. If part of a healthy, varied diet Vitamin C can help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, as well as a range other officially recognised health benefits.

Did you know? Blackcurrant bushes grown without pesticides have lower yields, but have been shown to contain higher levels of Vitamin C than those treated with common pesticide applications?

Our blackcurrants also contain high levels of fibre, low calories, and of course anthocyanins, the polyphenolic compounds that gives our berries their rich dark purple colour, and which have been of major interest to scientists over previous decades, especially for nutritional applications in sports and brain health.

 

Vitamin C is recognised for the following health benefits:

  • Contributes to the normal immune system function
  • Contributes to iron absorption from food
  • Necessary for normal connective tissue structure and function
  • Necessary for normal blood vessel structure and function
  • Contributes to cell protection from free radical damage
  • Necessary for normal neurological function
  • Contributes to normal growth and development
  • Contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal structure of cartilage and bones
  • Contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of teeth and gums
  • Contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin
  • Contributes to normal energy metabolism
  • Contributes to normal psychological function
  • Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue 

Anthocyanins: the new spring in your step? 

NZ Blackcurrants have been shown to contain higher levels of anthocyanins — a polyphenolic compound with antioxidant effects — than blackcurrants grown elsewhere in the world, in case you needed another reason to buy local and organic
Research is showing the promising effects of anthocyanins for a range of different nutritional needs:
  • Brain and Eye Health
  • Sports Nutrition
  • Immunity and Chronic Disease Prevention
