SALT LAKE CITY, June 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- It's been nearly two years since USANA began operations in Colombia, and USANA Colombia has been named the sole GOLD Medal recipient for Colombian products in the recently released 2015 NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements for the Americas. This guide features comparisons of products from Canada, Mexico, Colombia and the United States.
USANA was also awarded the 2015 NutriSearch Editors' Choice Award for excellence in manufacturing quality and commitment to science.
