Date:2/2/2009

Ocean Spray Supports the Go Red for Women Movement by Donating More than $1.4 Million Over Three Years.

LAKEVILLE-MIDDLEBORO, Mass., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Ocean Spray is joining the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women(C) movement, by giving more than $1.4 million in support of the cause. While heart disease is the number one killer of women in the U.S., it is also largely preventable. Throughout the month of February, Go Red for Women brings people together to raise awareness about this serious threat to women's health.

"With more education and awareness, fewer women and their families will be impacted by heart disease, so Ocean Spray is devoted to funding research and supporting awareness campaigns like Go Red for Women," said Ken Romanzi, chief operating officer at Ocean Spray. "It's also a cause that is close to our hearts as research suggests that diets rich in vegetables and fruits such as cranberries may support heart health in addition to benefitting overall wellness."

Go Red For Women provides the knowledge and tools to empower women to make positive health changes in their lives that could help reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke. The campaign encourages women to take care of their hearts by balancing physical activity and eating a healthy diet with foods that provide all the nutrients the body needs.

Whether for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a quick snack, it's important for everyone to choose foods that provide a healthy balance of nutrition. Seek a colorful selection of fruits and vegetables, foods that offer whole grains, fat-free and low-fat dairy products as well as lean meats and poultry or fish rich in Omega-3 fatty acids will help ensure a balanced diet. The wholesome goodness of the cranberry is the perfect addition to this balanced diet, providing a heart-healthy source of fruit.

The select Ocean Spray products that are certified by the American Heart Association's Food Certification Program, which identifies foods as being heart-healthy and low in saturated fat and cholesterol, include Ocean Spray(R) Cranberry Juice Cocktail, Cran-Grape(R) Grape Cranberry Juice Drinks, Premium 100% Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice, Premium 100% White Grapefruit Juice and Craisins(R) Original Sweetened Dried Cranberries, Craisins(R) Cherry Flavor Sweetened Dried Cranberries and Craisins(R) Orange Flavor Sweetened Dried Cranberries.
