In the lead up to Easter, Darrell Lea has teamed up with the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) to launch the Darrell Lea OCRF Milk Chocolate Egg to support ovarian cancer research in Australia.

The all-round good egg is made with Darrell Lea’s signature milk chocolate, and donates 20 cents for every OCRF Egg sold to support ovarian cancer research in Australia.

Darrell Lea senior marketing manager Lili Despotovic said that although ovarian cancer stands as the most lethal reproductive cancer across all genders, with a 49 per cent survival rate, it is still critically underfunded in Australia.

“We are proud to collaborate with the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation to make a meaningful impact in the fight against ovarian cancer. By gifting our OCRF Milk Chocolate Egg this Easter, customers not only experience the joy of sharing in our delicious chocolate but also play a vital role in supporting innovative life-saving research,” said Despotovic.

OCRF CEO Robin Penty said the much-needed funds will play a vital role in helping the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) support world-leading ovarian cancer researchers in Australia.

“Darrell Lea's support will have a huge impact for our community, by raising awareness and increasing research to improve survival rates for women and girls with ovarian cancer.

“As the leading independent funder of ovarian cancer research in Australia, OCRF currently supports 16 research projects across the country. Proceeds go directly to Australia’s best and most promising ovarian cancer research,” said Penty.

The Darrell Lea OCRF Milk Chocolate Egg 100g is available exclusively online and in-store at Coles supermarkets nationwide for RRP $8.50.
