Sunkist Growers Showcasing Fresh Produce at PMA Foodservice Conference
MONTEREY, CA – With citrus on the rise in restaurants, Sunkist Growers plans on making a splash at this week’s PMA Foodservice Conference & Expo with cocktails and mock-tails that showcase fresh produce.
Sunkist will have over 40 varieties of fresh citrus on display this weekend. The company will offer samples of fresh mixology recipes that show off trending global influences and Meyer lemons, according to a press release.
“Lemon demand is stronger than ever, and specialty varieties like the Meyer lemon provide new, exciting flavors that consumers are embracing on items across the menu,” said Sunkist Advertising and Public Relations Manager, Joan Wickham. “At this year’s PMA Foodservice Conference & Expo, we are pleased to be sharing two fresh mixology recipes that highlight the versatility of Meyer lemons to trade.”
Sunkist Chef Robert Danhi will be at the Sunkist booth offering fresh cocktails and mock-tails with a Southeast Asian flair. The two offered drinks will be a Sunkist Meyer Lemon-Rose Summer Splash cocktail and a non-alcoholic Sunkist Lemonade with Chinese Dates and Star Anise.
Sunkist will also feature Sunkist Family Stories, a new multimedia storytelling project that tells the stories of the families that have made up the 120-year old cooperative.
“Diners are increasingly aware of and interested in the stories behind their food,” added Wickham. “As a 120-year old cooperative with a rich history in California and Arizona, Sunkist has many powerful narratives that speak to who we are as a company and supplier – and we are excited to share those stories with the foodservice trade with our Sunkist Family Stories program.”
