We have gotten used to seeing food trucks on most of downtown city blocks, serving up everything from burgers to anything delectable dishes in the most convenient ways. Now, “Locally”, introduces a “FRUIT TRUCK”, a first-of-its-kind fruit truck. The truck brings a variety of fruity flavors on the road.
“Locally” by NutriAsia rolled out is very first Locally Fruit Truck at Bonifacio Global City during the 2017 BGC Passionfest in November. Passionfest attendees and art and music enthusiast are in for a quirky treat as the Locally Fruit Truck dispenses some real fruity goodness with its juice drinks, all for FREE! These include Tamarin My Bell, Pomelong & lasting Love, Save the Best for SinigueLast, Calamansi’z The Day, Guyabano-body But You, You’ve Dalandan It Again and Mangosteenie Miney Mo.
At the launch, mixologist Kalel Demetrio a.k.a. “Liquid Maestro” served exclusive and exciting Locally concoctions, while hip-hop artist and R&B singer-songwriter Quest and singer-guitarist Keiko Necesario provided the entertainment.
Local juices and mixes made from homegrown fruits across the country farmed by Filipino hands, and squeezed into fun and unique Filipino falvors.
“The Fruit Truck is our modern take on the ice cream truck of our youth which made us jump for joy when you see it on the road or hear its bells and music play. We want Filipinos to feel that way with this while celebrating our local fruits and juices, and basically just celebrating being Pinoy,” Gretchen King, group product manager-specialty F&B at NutriAsia.
“The truck will also serve free local juices made from homegrown fruits from different regions, exclusive Pinoy mixes co-created with expert liquid chef Liquido Maestro, and other fun Pinoy fruit treats.”
King also asked the public to watch out for Locally Fruit Truck’s upcoming stops in the metro and keep an eye out special surprises that locally is prepping for them.
“We want to bring this unique experience closer to Filipinos by rolling out as many Fruit Trucks as we can. We hope we bring the kind of nostalgia on wheels the classic ice cream trucks had long given the public,” King added.
Local fruits squeezed to produce Locally Blended Juice Drinks are sourced indigenous local fruits, namely tamarind from Batangas, Pangasinan, and Bulacan; calamansi from Isabela, Tarlac, and Nueva Ecija; dalandan from Laguna and Mindoro; guyabano from Cebu and Misamis Occidental; pomelo from Davao; and siniguelas from the Negros provinces.
Aside from its Blended Juice Drinks, Locally also offers Merci Buco, the first Eco-Certified and pure organics coconut water in the country. Merci Buco also comes in buco pandan and buco lychee variants.
Very soon King promised that Locally Fruit Truck will roll into Metro Manila’s top food parks, resto hubs, malls, and transport terminals.
