From Natural Products INSIDER
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn presented NOW International with the Governor’s Export Award for Continuing Excellence in Exporting in the large company (more than 500 employees) category. NOW Foods president Al Powers said the award recognizes NOW’s teamwork and its mission to help people live healthier lives with natural products.
The award recognizes businesses that exemplify significant contributions to Illinois’ economic development in the fields of export and manufacturing, service and agribusiness. This was the second time the State of Illinois honored NOW International’s track record of growing exports; the company received a similar award for 2008. The company has also been recognized twice with the U.S. President’s “E" Award for Achievement in Export.
