Socially Responsible Business Awards Breakfast at Expo East Canceled

Boston, MA (August 5, 2009)--The Socially Responsible Business Awards (SRBA) breakfast, originally scheduled for September 24 at Natural Products Expo East in Boston, has been canceled. The SRBA board made the announcement due to several unforeseen technical issues that the board thought would have compromised the integrity of this highly respected annual event. The breakfast is planned to resume in the fall of 2010.

“Given the close ties between the values of the natural products industry and the SRBA we regret that the awards will not be made this year at a time when our country and our industry are facing serious economic and long-term sustainability challenges. We do hope the spirit of social responsibility will still remain at the forefront of our industry’s efforts and relationships,” said SRBA board chair Gurudhan S. Khalsa.

The SBRA board wishes to thank the companies that pledged to sponsor this year’s awards: UNFI, Herbalist & Alchemist, Clif Bar, Aubrey Organics, White Wave and the annual main sponsor, Golden Temple.
