Making good products available at good prices is the foundation upon which Hall of Legends inductee Elwood Richards built NOW Foods

When suitors come calling to buy the business, Richards says he asks to talk to them face-to-face to tell them why he thinks they are ruining the industry and why he'll never sell to someone who doesn't share his values.
