Silk Team Protein Initiative

Silk is excited to introduce gold medal-winning
athlete Carl Lewis as the newest face of the Silk®
soymilk portfolio and member of Team Protein. Carl is
featured on Original and Unsweet Silk Soymilk cartons,
available on grocery store shelves now!

To celebrate the new partnership, Carl and Silk Soymilk are
passing the torch to the next generation of athletes through
the “Silk Team Protein” initiative, a new initiative for HBCU*
track & field teams that is designed to help promote top talent,
on and off the field, through a total of $50,000 in donations.
