What’s 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 the disease. We want to carry a message to all the women about the importance of cancer prevention and early detection, which saves 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 several important antioxidants.
