I have been in business now for nine years, and almost from the start, I’ve had my eye on the Alive Awards.
Every year, Alive Magazine runs a competition to spotlight the best natural health products in Canada. In the words of Alive, “Winning the prestigious gold, silver, or bronze medals validates the most ethical and innovative products in our industry.”
Winners bask in fantastic publicity, and perhaps more importantly, secure the Alive Awards seal in advertising and on product packaging.
For consumers in-the-know, this medallion can make all the difference between wavering on the brink of a purchase and snapping up the product with no regrets. The Alive Award is a meaningful symbol in a crowded, confusing marketplace.
This year Natural Calm has come away with the Vitamins and Supplements Gold – both by Consumers’ Choice and Retailers’ Choice! That’s right. There’s clear alignment between Canadian business and customers: Natural Calm really works!
We had some tough competition, categorized as we were with heavy-hitters, Vega – a great Canadian brand. They took the silver, and it was more than well-deserved. We love what Vega is doing for plant-based living.
I am so grateful to all of our customers and retail partners who took the time to vote.
As you know, the more our business grows, the more we give to Organics 4 Orphans (O4O). All profits after business expenses are donated to O4O, to help the world’s poorest communities achieve health and food security, naturally.
This exposure and validation will help us take giving to the next level.
Again, thank you to all of our supporters and to Alive Magazine!
