HECK has announced it will be renaming as CHECK for the month and joining the fight for men’s health .
With Movember in full swing, Yorkshire food company HECK has announced it will be renaming as CHECK for the month and joining the fight for men’s health.

Hopefully our packs of CHECK sausages will start some conversations which will raise awareness, and funds and maybe even save some lives.”
Director of Partnerships at Movember UK & Europe Laura Mair says “We’re excited about HECK’s rebrand to CHECK for Movember which will hopefully drive conversations about men’s health in supermarkets nationwide throughout the month. Our goal is to stop men dying too young, and in order to achieve this we need more men aware of the risks that they face and to take action when there’s an issue. HECK has created a really fun way to
