"We're proud to continue our partnership with Susan G. Komen," said Stephanie Bazan, senior vice president of commercial strategy and execution at Avocados From Mexico. "It's an opportunity to drive awareness for what this important organization does and to call attention to the natural goodness avocados offer. As a leading produce brand, we strive to align with causes that are important to our customers."
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women in the U.S.; one in eight women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. A cause that impacts so many women is a cause that is important to avocado shoppers, who are 74 percent female.
Healthy eating patterns that include plenty of fruits, vegetables, and unsaturated fats are associated with better breast and colorectal cancer outcomes, and avocados are a fruit that contributes six grams of unsaturated fats. Additionally, avocados contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, and are a versatile food, which makes them a powerful recovery agent. That's why Avocados From Mexico and Susan G. Komen go together like avo and toast.
This October, shoppers can offer their support for Susan G. Komen with each purchase of fresh, nourishing Avocados From Mexico. All they need to do is find the eye-catching pink packaging.
