IOF announces Tetra Pak's support of World Osteoporosis Day

The International Osteoporosis Foundation announced today that Tetra Pak, one of the world's leading food processing and packaging companies, will be a major partner for the IOF during 2006 in promoting awareness of how individuals can build strong bones and contribute to their bone health. Tetra Pak will also be a key partner in the World Osteoporosis Day (WOD) activities.

"IOF is delighted to have Tetra Pak's support, especially with this year's World Osteoporosis Day theme Bone Appetit the role of food and nutrition in building healthy bones," said IOF Chief Executive Officer Daniel Navid. "Through WOD 2006 we are highlighting how healthy food and good nutrition help to build peak bone mass in young people, help to maintain general health during adulthood and are useful as part of treatment program for people with fractures Tetra Pak's support, as one of four Global Gold Sponsors for World Osteoporosis Day, will help spread this message worldwide."

Highlighting the importance of the cooperation with IOF, Jorgen Haglind, Tetra Pak's Senior Vice-President Communications, stated: "Tetra Pak's motto, 'protects what's good', summarizes the core business philosophy of the company as practiced in different ways in our business operations. We are supporting IOF to express our commitment to help protect the health of consumers around the world."

Osteoporosis, in which the bones become fragile and break easily, is one of the world's most devastating and common chronic diseases. It strikes one in three women over 50 worldwide (more than breast cancer) and one in five men (more than prostate cancer).
