Supporting British growers and enjoying healthy treats over the summer holidays mean there is a double feelgood factor.” Explains Paul Avery, Sales and Insight Director.
Berries are a delicious staple and are consumed as part of a healthy diet, bringing strawberries into the home keeps the feeling of summer alive even if the weather doesn’t play ball. Supermarket shelves will be stacked with delicious strawberries over the coming weeks, ready for the whole family to enjoy during the summer holidays,
