“Each year at New Hope Network, the largest trade journal serving the natural products industry, honors the industry’s greatest contributors….Legends are individuals at the center of stories about change—influencers who change the way we do what we do with enduring impact.”

This year Debra was one of 12 individuals honored.

The 12 inductees represented various parts of the industry.  A pioneering farmer who introduced Kamut to the US.  The founder of Traditional Medicinals, which partnered with farmers and wildcrafters to bring medicinal herbal tea to the market before most people even heard of such a thing.   The husband and wife who brought stevia to the United States.  Debra was the only retailer.  Because, little did you know (?) this little health food store is known and respected around the country, by the people who care about such things.

What an honor.  Exciting!  And she knows she owes it all to you, who have taught us all so much when you come through our doors.
