♦ Herbal Hero — Individuals who make outstanding contributions to AHPA committees or initiatives. Nominees must be employed by an AHPA member company.
♦ Herbal Industry Leader — Companies that set an example of outstanding business practices or organizations that work to move the industry forward above and beyond normal business practices. Nominees must be members of AHPA.
♦ Herbal Insight Award — Individuals or non-commercial organizations that have a significant impact on furthering knowledge and understanding of botanicals and their uses. Nominees need not be associated with an AHPA member company
