Dear Florida Strawberry Lover,
The Florida Strawberry Growers Association is encouraging chefs and restaurant managers to serve Florida strawberries more often.
This initiative supports the national movement by many foodservice professionals, supermarket executives and consumers to buy local when possible. We appreciate your loyalty to Florida’s incredible and bountiful agriculture industry.
Thanks for your support of our strawberries in April (Customer Loyalty Month) and throughout our winter season. Oh, and keep smiling-especially this month. Remember April is National Smile Month.
In case you missed visiting our booth at the Festival this year, you might be interested to know that it was a winner. We took first prize. Make sure you come by next year. And keep your fingers crossed that we’ll win in 2012, too.
The Strawberry Festival in Plant City ran from March 3-13. We were there. If you’ve never attended this event, it’s well worth the trip. It’s hard to describe. You have to see it to believe it.
Happy cooking with Florida winter strawberries!
