Milwaukee, Wisconsin - The largest US consumer segment are the baby boomers, who are very willing to manage their own health needs, and invest in preventative measures. This lifestyle is reflected throughout the world's population, as consumers everywhere are looking for healthy and natural foods that will help promote their general health and wellbeing.
