Farmers around the country are being encouraged to go pink this summer in aid of breast cancer awareness with pink netwrap supplied by Tama Plastic Industry.

Tama, the leading crop packaging manufacturer are launching the campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer in agricultural communities and rural areas and will be donating a percentage per role to cancer research UK.

A limited quantity of the netwrap have been specially manufactured in pink for this campaign and can be purchased across all Cornwall Farmers and Patch and Acre stores.

Graham Robson, Tama Technical Manager, said: “The distinctive colour is sure to be noticed and bring the issue to people’s attention. Women have integral roles in the contracting and farming businesses that we work with and seldom get the attention and recognition they deserve.

“We wanted to do something to encourage awareness of breast cancer in the rural community and making the netwrap pink, the familiar colour indicator of campaign supporters, is our way of doing this and recognising the unsung heroes in farming, the women!”

The special pink 3,600m Edge-to-Edge netwrap rolls holds together round bales of hay, silage and straw.

Helen Ansel, Marketing Manager at Cornwall Farmers, said: “We are delighted to be supplying the pink net wrap across our stores as members of the United Farmers, supporting cancer research. It will be great to see the bays of hay wrapped in the pink netting in the fields around Cornwall, creating awareness and raising money for such a good cause.”
