  • Ultradent Raises Company Record 403,010 lbs. of Food For Utah Food Bank

    November 24, 2014 South Jordan, Utah

    ​Ultradent Products, Inc. set a new record for its annual Hunger Games-themed food drive this year, raising 403,010 lbs. of food for the Utah Food Bank. That donation translates into $100,752.50 for the Utah Food Bank to help feed needy families this holiday season and throughout the year. Each year, Ultradent employees have consistently increased the amount of food/money raised during its annual food drive, and this year is no exception, as Ultradent increased its donation amount by 14.5% from last year. In 2013, Ultradent raised 352,088 lbs. of food during its food drive, in 2012, Ultradent raised 208,000 lbs. during its food drive, and, in 2011, the company raised 85,000 lbs. of food for the Utah Food Bank.

    Donations for Ultradent’s 2014 food drive were raised through numerous opportunity drawings, bake/pop-up boutique sales, and several “Food Truck Friday” events, organized by company employees. Ultradent presented a check for $100,752.50 to the CEO of the Utah Food Bank on Friday, November 21, 2014.

    Dr. Fischer, Ultradent’s president and CEO, attributes his enthusiasm for the food drive to lessons he learned as a young boy. He says, “My grandfather taught me as a young boy that it is only with an open hand that one has the ability to receive.”
