FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Aug. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lori Bigelow of Wilton, Connecticut was recently recognized by America's Registry of Outstanding Professionals and Strathmore's Who's Who for her outstanding contributions and achievements in the field of Tea Manufacturing. She has now been accepted into the Legacy Elite Program.

Lori Bigelow grew up in a family that specializes in developing tea.  She earned her M.S.N. at Keene State College but maintained her relationship with the family business, Bigelow Tea Company.  Ms. Bigelow learned all about the business of making specialty teas including a sense of blending, sipping, tasting and tweaking which ultimately led to the development of some of Bigelow's favorite and best loved teas.  The seasonal favorite, Vanilla Chai and the Novus line are just 2 of the many. Ms. Bigelow was on the board of the U.S. Tea Association and is a member of the Canadian Tea Association.  She was instrumental in the purchase of the Bigelow's Tea Charleston Tea Plantation which she helped to get up and running in 2003.  The Plantation grows and produces American Classic Tea and is open to weddings, tours and music festivals.  Ms. Bigelow currently oversees the everyday operations of the plantation and says "As those who came before me, tea has been my life…and it's been a great one."

The Legacy Elite Program in America's Registry is a unique membership that is allotted to only a handful of our most honored members.  Inclusion is based on the individual's demonstration of excellence, expertise and success in their chosen industry.  Many are considered, few are chosen.  To date, there have been no more than 5 people (out of over 100,000 in both America's and Strathmore's) in the Legacy Elite Program.  Lori Bigelow is among those who have met the rigid standards of the Legacy Elite Program, therefore, we are pleased to honor her.
