Breast Cancer Awareness. Behind the Pink Sticker.
We dressed our Blue Sticker in pink, to become an ambassador for the global Pink Ribbon symbol of the fight against breast cancer. At Chiquita, we want to send a message to all women about breast cancer awareness and the importance of early detection through regular mammograms that can truly save lives.
Maintaining a balanced diet is a vital part of this and Chiquita bananas are an important part of a healthy diet, as they contain fiber, vitamins, and other important nutrients.
We partner with the American Cancer Society to support Breast Cancer Awareness
Breast cancer is sometimes found after symptoms appear, but many women with breast cancer have no symptoms at all. This is why regular mammograms are so important, and at Chiquita we want to raise awareness and encourage early detection and diagnosis.
The importance of these recommendations below can be seen in the decrease in mortality rates thanks to the early discovery of breast cancer, through detection and better awareness, as well as better treatments.
