BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH KICKS OFF IN OREGON WITH PINK ICE CREAM

Umpqua Dairy’s pink ice cream is officially on sale with a percentage of all sales being donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Today the company launches Huckleberry Cheesecake ice cream in hundreds of grocery stores throughout the Northwest.   

“Last month we were honored to present a check
for almost $10,000 to Susan G. Komen based on last year’s sales,” says Steve
Feldkamp, Umpqua Dairy’s Chief Operating Officer. “We hope to raise even more
money for this important cause this year.”

Umpqua Dairy thru a partnership with the Susan G.
Komen Fountation developed a pink packaging design and the special October
flavor. The limited time flavor is available in most Safeway, Albertson’s, Fred
Meyer, WinCo and Walmart locations in Oregon, along with hundreds of
independent stores.

This year Umpqua Dairy is also helping people
impacted by breast cancer. Nominations can be made at UmpquaDairy.com on the
‘Share Your Story’ tab. One person per week will be selected to receive free
groceries.

“We’ve been fortunate to serve the area since
1931,” says Feldkamp. “It was important to my Grandfather that we support the
people and communities who support us. That tradition continues to this day at
Umpqua Dairy.”

Huckleberry Cheesecake ice cream features milk
that’s 100% from Oregon cows. The product is exclusively manufactured at Umpqua
Dairy’s headquarters in Roseburg.
