NEW YORK, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of National Berry Month this July, Driscoll's (http://www.driscolls.com), the nation's leading producer of fresh berries, and Loews Hotels will host an official Berry Concierge at each of Loews 17 properties on July 4th weekend. To kick off the "Taste of Loews" program, Driscoll's Berry Concierge will be stationed in the lobbies of Loews properties and poolside at resorts greeting guests with complimentary red, white and blue berry mocktails or cocktails in the afternoon of July 2nd and 3rd. Concierges will engage kids and adults alike with smoothie-making demonstrations, while talking about the nutritional benefits of berries.
"Taste of Loews" is a weekly program that runs at participating hotels through the year, offering guests the chance to sample unexpected culinary creations through partnerships with food and beverage companies who share similar values. "By aligning with an eponymous grower like Driscoll's, we are able to educate our guests that eating natural foods can be a healthy, delightful and entertaining experience," says Ellen Burke Van Slyke, Creative Director Food and Beverage, Loews Hotels. Loews is committed to serving the freshest ingredients, which is demonstrated through its brand-wide "Adopt-A Farmer" program, supporting local area farmers, fisherman and purveyors at each property.
Driscoll's is a family-owned company that has been growing berries for more than 100 years. Driscoll's blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries are grown by independent farmers who focus on providing the ultimate berry experience for consumers. In many instances, the farmers are third and fourth-generation growers whose singular focus is to delight consumers - whether they are snacking berries at home, enjoying berries at a restaurant or in the case of The White House, providing the first family and their guests with juicy delights of all natural goodness. "Partnering with Loews on a national basis is a natural progression for us. Their brand is known for an exceptional, fresh, healthy and delicious approach to the menu while Driscoll's berries deliver incomparable flavor and a delightful eating experience," said Doug Ronan, Driscoll's Vice President of Marketing.
