NBJ Congratulates 2009 Award Winners

Drum roll, please…

Nutrition Business Journal announced the recipients of its 2009 NBJ Business Achievement Awards this month, and the winners—and nominees—proved that positive things can be born amidst adversity. Whether they were expanding their sales by double digits, buying up new businesses that will better position them for the future, creating a product breakthrough, educating others on the benefits of the industry’s products, or donating their time and talents to help others in need, our 2009 winners represent companies and executives who bucked the downward trend last year and serve as beacons of hope for the coming decade.

Profiles of the winners are published in NBJ’s Awards and Executive Review issue. Winners will also be honored during an awards dinner, to be held at the 2010 NBJ Summit. This year’s Summit will take place July 20-23, at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California. We look forward to celebrating all of our 2009 award winners later this year at the NBJ Summit. We hope you can join us.
