BiteRiot! preparing to send cherries directly to Chinese market for 2018-2019 season

Owner Fiona Hall says BiteRiot! is hoping to air freight at least 3 shipments of fresh cherries a week to China, exporting around 70 tonnes in total. It will be a major boost not having to go through Hong Kong. BiteRiot, along with partner, Vincent Chen of TopFruit, have established distribution facilities in Guangzhou and Shanghai to service the E-commerce channel.

Cherries are fitness friendly!

We love an article in the Huffington Post that states that cherries combat post-workout soreness.

‘Find yourself having trouble walking down the stairs (or even sitting down) after a hard workout? If you’re looking for a healthy way to fight post-exercise soreness, cherries fit the bill. Studies suggest a cup and a half of tart cherries or one cup of tart cherry juice can significantly reduce muscle inflammation and soreness (remember that a good workout actually causes muscle damage, resulting in inflammation).

In one study a group of marathon runners drank tart cherry juice or a placebo drink twice daily for seven days prior to their race. The cherry juice group reported significantly less post-race muscle pain. Remember to have it immediately post workout (i.e. with your whey protein) when your muscles are primed to absorb excess insulin in the bloodstream.’

Now that it’s cherry season, make sure you have a bowl of cherries in your fridge ready for your post-workout snack or you can grab a bottle of our freshly sealed, 100% BiteRiot cherry juice from supermarkets such as Harris Farm and IGA. Enjoy!!
