KINGSTON:

Honey Bun Limited, Jamaica's fastest-growing wholesale bakery, will again cement their support for student athletes during its summer 'Black, Green, and Goldie' promotion.

The pastry bakers will donate part proceeds of the sales promotion to support up-and-coming student athletes as the the new school year approaches.

Janelle Brown, marketing executive, noted that the 34-year-old Jamaican-owned bakery is committed to continuing the tradition of excellence built by the nation's athletes.

"Our living legends like Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce are passing their baton to the next generation and Honey Bun is taking steps to ensure that the pride we all feel does not end with them. Talent can only go so far, we must invest in these students so they, too, can grow into champions," she said.

Through the Black, Green, and Goldie promotion, which began Friday, July 29, Honey Bun will donate part proceeds from the sale of its special Goldie eight-pack to student athletes from primary and high schools. Consumers will receive two free Goldies for every six bought, while stocks last. The special, which is available at Shoppers Fair Supermarkets, will run until August 30.

Earlier this year, Honey Bun sponsored the six-meet Digicel Grand Prix. Boxes of Goldies were presented to the gold medallists at each meet.

In May, the 34-year-old company also handed over cooking and trade work gear valued at $200,000 to 2016 Digicel Grand Prix champion schools Edwin Allen High and St Jago High.

The schools received packages of 92 brightly coloured Honey Bun-branded aprons and 100 potholders valued at $100,000 each.
