LASCO Summer Fun Smoothies at Flow Back-2-School Fair
WITH HEALTH and wellness and rehydration as a top priority in today's society, the Flow Back-2-School Fair will use this theme as a focal point of the fair on Sunday, August 23, at the Old Hospital Park in Montego Bay, St James.
LASCO has partnered with Flow to provide nourishing treats and water under the new iCool brand for the more than 5,000 patrons expected to attend the event this weekend.
According to Flow's Sponsorship Manager Nicole Campbell, "With Flow being a family brand, and seeing the alarming rates of malnutrition, we thought that we ought to give children a drink option that's not only tasty but healthy as well. LASCO has been around for generations, and they are trusted to manufacture good food options for Jamaicans by Jamaicans, and this is a vision that we believe in," she stated.
Creating a quick, nutritionally balanced snack for your child doesn't have to be difficult as LASCO understands this challenge and has a wide variety of affordable items, guaranteed to meet your family's nutritional needs, especially with tight time constraints. Many of these items will be on sale at the Back-2-School Fair.
According to Catherine Goodall, marketing manager for LASCO Beverages, "One of the mandates of the LASCO Group of companies is corporate social responsibility, and partnering with Flow for this huge back-to-school venture was a great opportunity for us to give back. Another important mandate of LASCO is giving our consumers great quality products at an affordable price. LASCO with our brands LASCO Food Drink and iCool will be responsible for keeping the patrons hydrated. We will be introducing our LASCO Food Drink Smoothies, which is packed with protein and other important nutrients that are great for health and strength," she stated.
The Flow/Discovery Back-2-School Fair remains free of cost and tickets are available at the Flow Fairview retail store in Montego Bay. The fair opens at 10 a.m. on Sunday, August 23.
