MELVILLE, N.Y., June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke has presented Natural Organics, Inc. with a 2010 Presidential "E" Award. Created in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy, the Presidential "E" Award is given to companies and organizations that contribute significantly to US exports, strengthen the US economy, and create American jobs. As one of just ten companies to receive the 2010 Presidential "E" Award, Natural Organics -- which manufactures the Nature's Plus line of nutritional supplements -- has been recognized with the highest US government honor for increasing exports.
"Today we honor companies that are selling high-quality products and services in every corner of the world, and most importantly, helping to create good jobs for American workers," Secretary Locke said as he presented the award.
"It is an honor to be recognized for providing superior-quality supplements to health-conscious consumers around the globe," commented Natural Organics President James Gibbons. "It is equally gratifying to promote economic progress by creating jobs for hardworking Americans, all while enhancing energy, well-being, and quality of life for millions worldwide with our industry-leading nutritional supplements. All of these achievements are thanks to our outstanding workforce, which ensures quality in all that we do, every single day."
Further elevating this impressive achievement, Nature's Plus has earned the coveted Presidential "E" Award amidst the chaos of a global economic downturn and significant changes in the way people view health. International consumers are increasingly interested in nutritional well-being, but cautious with their dollars and sophisticated in their buying habits. Health-conscious people in other countries prioritize supplement efficacy above all, and purchase imported American-made nutritional supplements because they want quality that can't be found elsewhere in the world.
"In the big picture, the Presidential 'E' Award is yet another testament to Nature's Plus' industry-leading quality and trailblazing nutritional innovation," explained Natural Organics CEO Gerald Kessler. "Nature's Plus has been leading the natural products industry for over 30 years in the US. The 'E' award shows that our reputation for excellence also precedes us on a global level. Our cutting-edge formulas continue to dazzle consumers around the world with safe, natural nutritional solutions that deliver exhilarating energy and tangible results. Consumers from hundreds of countries have spoken with their dollars and loyalty, validating that Nature's Plus is not only the premier stateside supplement choice, but is also the best nutritional supplement manufacturer in the world."
A leader in the natural products/nutritional supplements industry for over three decades, Nature's Plus is widely known for its Source of Life(R) multivitamins, Animal Parade(R) children's vitamins, and SPIRU-TEIN(R) energy shakes. Nature's Plus manufactures and distributes hundreds of products that support optimum health and overall well-being.
