NatureSweet® Tomatoes is showing its support for Breast Cancer Awareness by donating $100,000 to Susan G. Komen® and featuring limited edition pink packaging throughout the month of October. The in-store pink packaging and promotional materials will include all NatureSweet brands, including Cherubs®, SunBursts™ and Glorys™ tomatoes.
“We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer, and we believe it’s important to support Susan G. Komen’s work to raise awareness about this disease and to support the research needed to find a cure,” said Michael Joergensen, NatureSweet’s Marketing Director. “Susan G. Komen is leading the fight against breast cancer, at both the local level and on a global scale, and we are proud to partner with them.”
In its second year of partnering with Susan G. Komen, NatureSweet is doubling its donation and featuring all brands in the pink packaging. NatureSweet’s $100,000 donation to Susan G. Komen is guaranteed and consumer purchases are not tied to the donation.
