Thomas Fresh, Calgary, Alberta, is bringing back pink packaging on onions to raise awareness of breast cancer.

The three-pound bags of yellow onions are available in organic this year, and will be available through the end of November.

“We had great success with this program in 2018, so we expect shoppers to anticipate our pink onions on shelves once again this fall,” Thomas Fresh CEO Roy Hinchey said, in a news release. “We are honored to be working alongside the Canadian Cancer Society for a second time to support this noble cause.”

Proceeds from each pink packaged onion bag supports breast cancer research through the Canadian Cancer Society, according to the release.

 “As a company who is in the industry of providing fruits and vegetables, we feel it is our duty to give back, and to use our brand as a vessel for important health-related causes,” Hinchey said in the release.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
