Sequel Naturals wins seven Alive awards

Sequel Naturals calls superior customer service and product innovation “a winning strategy” and the major reason the company recently took home seven Alive top product awards for 2010.

Retailers from coast-to-coast voted for the best consumer products in a variety of natural health categories for the annual awards showcase which were developed to recognize outstanding product innovation while enhancing the credibility of natural health products.

Capturing gold medals were Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer in the Multivitamins & Supplements category, Vega Sport Performance Optimizer in the Fitness & Weight Management category and Vega Sport Performance Protein, the successful sport-focused follow-up launched in 2010, in the New Supplements section.

Silver medal winners were Vega Antioxidant EFA Oil Blend in the Healthy Oils & EFAS category, Vega Whole Food Vibrancy Bars in the Natural Food, Bars & Beverages category and MacaSure Chocolat in the Functional Foods category.

MacaSure captured a bronze medal in the Men’s Products category.

“We are flattered and thankful that the health food retailers, who have many products to choose from, chose ours to be best-in-class in so many categories. It is a great honour and we take great pride in these awards,” said Charles Chang, Sequel president and founder. The seven awards represents the most Sequel has won in its five-year participation in the Alive awards program.
