We're partnering with cold-pressed rapeseed oil manufacturer Borderfields for 2019. They are set to raise more than £50,000 to help us in our mission to beat heartbreak forever.

We are proud to announce the launch of a jointly-branded bottle with the Nottinghamshire-based producer, Borderfields. The bottles of rapeseed oil will be sold across supermarkets in England and Scotland from 4th February. To celebrate the partnership, and raise vital funds for our lifesaving research, Borderfields are donating 10p from every co-branded bottle to the BHF.

Benefits of unsaturated fats

Switching from saturated fats, like butter and coconut oil, to unsaturated fats, like rapeseed oil, can have a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels, helping to lower the non-HDL, or ‘bad’, cholesterol that is linked to an increased risk of heart and circulatory diseases

Director at Borderfields, Paul Davenport, said: “Our partnering with the British Heart Foundation is something we are very proud of, they are a charity that does fantastic work and we too will be working hard to secure our target of £50,000 which will help fund the charity’s life saving research. We feel the co-branded, colourful packaging will stand out on the shelves and promote the health benefits of cold pressed rapeseed oil.” 

“We’re excited to see the co-branded bottles on shelves”

Our Chief Executive, Simon Gillespie, said “We’re excited to see the co-branded bottles of Borderfields oil on supermarket shelves. It’s thanks to the support of companies like Borderfields that we can fund life saving research to help the seven million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases.”

Keep and eye out for bottles in a supermarket near you.
