The natural and organic products industry supports a huge range of players, from just-launched brands to legacy companies that have been around for decades, as well as nonprofits, regulators, thought leaders and more. Among this rich diversity of brands and people, some provide especially thought-provoking, engaging and consequential contributions. Throughout 2023, quite a number of game-changing companies and leaders emerged, sharing entrepreneurial best practices, compelling sustainability stories and a broad range of education.
