Truckload of Blueberries Ripped Off
Here’s a word of caution to produce haulers that even the most perishables of perishable are not necessarily safe from thieves. Whoever stole this load of berries must have had a quick outlet to sell it, or are very, very stupid.
A load of blackberries was stolen March 17 in Milton, Ontario from C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc.
The blackberries were shipped from Laredo, Texas and were packed in 6-ounce clamshells under the Berry Lovers label, according to a press release from the Ottawa, Ontario-based Fruit and Vegetable Dispute Resolution Corp (DRC). The DRC mediates disputes between parties in the Canadian produce industry.
The Trading Assistance office of the DRC is helping C.H. Robinson notify industry members about the theft.
Those with information can contact the Halton Regional Police Service, at (905) 825-4747, ext. 5155; or Diego Lettari in C.H. Robinson’s Montreal office, at (514) 381-7404.
