LISLE, Ill., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After teaming together for success in 2012, Healthy Ones®, the "better-for you" deli and lunchmeat brand, and WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, are once again teaming up to promote women's heart health through the "Think Red" program. Doing so, Healthy Ones will be dressed in red this February through packaging on shelf and signage in the deli, all in recognition of Heart Health Awareness Month.
Consumers can look for the red-themed packaging of Healthy Ones tub lunchmeat and red-themed signage in the deli across grocery stores nationwide. Healthy Ones will donate five cents per tub of lunchmeat and five cents per pound of deli meat sold during February to WomenHeart, up to a maximum donation of $50,000 for all participating products.
"Healthy Ones is proud of our partnership with WomenHeart for a second year," said Elizabeth Di John, Brand Manager, Healthy Ones. We strive to support a healthy lifestyle, so we were thrilled that our 2012 campaign helped aid women in taking preventive actions that reduce their risk of heart disease. It is very rewarding to know that we can continue supporting those efforts in 2013."
The American Heart Association has certified the entire line of Healthy Ones ham, turkey breast, chicken breast and roast beef as "Extra Lean." Healthy Ones is sold at the deli, in lunchmeat tubs and zip packs, and as variety packs.
