“Healthy Ones’ mission is to provide people with honest, wholesome food in the flavors they love to support a healthy lifestyle and, as such, we are very excited to announce that we are donating a portion of October sales to BCRF, an organization that shares our core mission of promoting better health,” said Nick Osborne, Armour-Eckrich Associate Brand Manager.
Every variety of Healthy Ones ham, turkey breast, chicken breast and roast beef are certified “Extra Lean” by the American Heart Association. Healthy Ones is sold at the deli, in lunchmeat tubs, zip packs and even as variety packs, in order to make it easy and convenient for everyone to enjoy the delicious lunchmeats.
