Burt’s Note | Summer ’18
July 2, 2018 | News
Welcome to the summer season! As a company, we like to take these months to recharge by taking vacations or extra days off to really relax and reset our body’s and mind’s, after a long and busy season.
This last month, I’ve had the chance to do a little international traveling myself. My wife Robin and I spent two weeks exploring the French countryside by riverboat and bike. What an experience! We truly got it see what it was like to live the farm-to-table lifestyle during our trip. I even got to try ‘farm-to-table ice cream’ on a dairy farm called La Haizerie, which is located on the outskirts of a village called Bayeux in the Normandy region of France.
In August, we have also have a company trip planned to the California wine country. A group of managers and corporate staff will be traveling to Napa & Sonoma to brush up on their wine education with some of the top vineyards our country has to offer. We’re looking forward to learning about new varietals, enjoying amazing food and most of all, drinking plenty of wine – all for the sake of research, of course.
While travelling in the summer is a great way to unwind, it also gives us an opportunity to see what other cultures and geographical locations are offering in food and beverage. It’s a great way for us to bring new ideas to the table, inspire new recipes and introduce new and exciting products to our guests back home.
I hope you all have a relaxing summer and thank you again for your continued loyalty. Until next time!
