In April 2006 Beehive Botanicals president Linda Graham of Hayward, WI received the Entrepreneurial Woman of the Year Award from the National Association of Women Business Owners Greater Milwaukee Chapter.
The Entrepreneurial Woman of the Year Award is presented annually to a Wisconsin woman whose ingenuity and hard work have created a successful business, and who best demonstrates the entrepreneurial spirit through her business, personal and community accomplishments. Nominees are accepted on behalf of business women from across the state.
Beehive Botanicals entered the natural products industry in 1972 as a manufacturer of dietary supplements, hair care products and skin care products using the highest quality bee propolis, pollen, and royal jelly.
Graham joined Beehive Botanicals in 1981, purchased the company in 1992 and since then has grown the business to over $5 million in annual sales. Her vision and eye for innovation has led the company to participate in cancer research, and to become Kosher and organic certified, which produced a five-fold increase in annual orders for one of her customers.
