CPM Ireland – Celebrating National Strawberry Week in Style!
It’s that time of year again…. And CPM Ireland in conjunction with Keelings, is getting ready to celebrate National Strawberry week in its customary flamboyant fashion. Our devoted teams of sampling and promotional staff are getting ready in true CPM-style to add a touch of panache to proceedings as they venture to a variety of Dublin events to promote Keelings tasty range of Strawberries this June Bank Holiday Weekend.
National Strawberry week runs all next week from the 4th to the 10th of June in Ireland and is a celebration of everyone’s favorite fruit, the Strawberry. Ireland’s climate means we have some of the world’s best strawberries. Although they are increasingly available year-round, Irish Strawberries are at their peak in Ireland in June, July and August, when they are most abundant and most delicious. These mouthwatering seed-studded red berries are now more accessible and affordable than ever and are still regarded as the ultimate summertime high. From memories of happy childhoods spent stuffing your face in secret at the side of the road, to delicious deserts, perfect picnics and romantic endeavors, a large serving of delectable strawberries are the perfect accompaniment and long, lazy summer afternoons.
As a bonus, Strawberries are good for you! They are particularly high in Vitamin C, a good source of folic acid and fiber, are fat-free and low in calories! Strawberries also contribute to your recommended ‘5 a day’ – who said being healthy can’t be pleasurable and even downright indulgent! And if you needed any further reason to stock up on strawberries, strawberry juice combined with honey will calm sunburn when applied to the skin – the perfect remedy for Irish complexions suffering after-effects from our recent bout of sunshine.
Strawberries are the perfect treat to put a smile on your face this bank holiday weekend. Research has shown Strawberry lovers tend to be”health conscious, fun loving, intelligent and happy” while Non-strawberry lovers, are “weird, boring, stuffy–picky, fussy eaters who avoid healthy foods”. So show your love and join our adorable lot in celebrating the scrumptious summer staple – the Strawberry!
Our colourful characters will be out in full force at the Bloom Festival in the Phoenix Park this weekend, from Friday – Monday June 1st-4th, providing oodles of free strawberries and plenty of giggles to lucky attendees.
You can catch our friendly bunch again at the Family Farm at Dublin Zoo on Thursday 7th of June where they will be distributing free samples of yummy Keelings Strawberries to anyone who pops over to say hello!
Finally, all next week our sampling staff will appear in major Irish supermarkets, providing tasty treats to delighted shoppers to promote Keelings Strawberries
