Eggland’s Best Continues its Commitment to Fighting Breast Cancer, with More Than A Decade of Supporting Komen’s Mission to Save Lives
Eggland’s Best is continuing its partnership with Susan G. Komen® in the fight to end breast cancer for the 12th consecutive year. Throughout October, the brand will raise awareness by turning its classic red stamps pink and help fund Komen’s mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
“We’re thankful to have the long-standing support of generous partners such as Eggland’s Best,” said Sarah Rosales, Komen’s VP of Corporate Partnerships. “Breast cancer touches so many lives in our communities, as one in eight women will be diagnosed in their lifetime. Our continued work with Eggland’s Best ensures that we can be there for all those affected by breast cancer and save as many lives as possible.”
This October, Eggland’s Best is pledging a $100,000 donation to Susan G. Komen in 2021-2022, regardless of sales, to ensure that all people receive the care they need and that researchers continue to make progress on a cure. The company is also encouraging consumers to join the fight against breast cancer by proudly featuring Susan G. Komen’s signature pink Running Ribbon® on its iconic EB-stamped eggs and displaying Susan G. Komen graphics on its cartons.
“Eggland’s Best is proud to once again team up with Susan G. Komen in support of the worthy fight against breast cancer,” said Charlie Lanktree, CEO of Eggland’s Best. “Though we have certainly made progress, we know this awful disease still touches so many each year. We are committed to helping Komen save lives by improving breast cancer education, research, and patient support.”
“I’m proud to support Susan G. Komen’s honorable mission through my work with Eggland’s Best,” said Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and founder of MPM Nutrition, Marissa Meshulam. “A well-balanced diet that includes nutrient-rich foods, like Eggland’s Best eggs, is an important component of maintaining good health. Compared to ordinary eggs, EB contains a variety of nutrients that can aid in overall wellness.”
