Blackmores' Executive Director, Marcus Blackmore AM, was honoured yesterday in Anaheim at the natural health industry's biggest convention, Natural Products Expo West.
He was inducted into the Hall of Legends by the New Hope Network because he has devoted a significant portion of his life to making the natural products industry what it is today. He is the first Australian inducted into the Hall of Legends.
"Legends are individuals at the centre of stories about change - influencers who change the way we do what we do with enduring impact," saidCarlotta Mast, Senior Vice President of Content and Insights, New Hope Network, Informa Global Health and Nutrition Network.
Inducting him into the Hall of Legends, Carlotta Mast, recognised Marcus Blackmore as "an icon of the natural health industry in Australia. For decades Marcus has fought hard for the regulation and rights of naturopaths and natural health products and established strong networks in Australia to protect freedom of health choice."
Under his leadership, Blackmores has grown from a small range of natural remedies to become the leading natural health company in Australia recognised across the Asia Pacific region as the most trusted brand in natural health. The Blackmores Group is now a house of seven brands sold in 17 markets.
"Marcus Blackmore is renowned for his commitment to natural health, his generosity, his entrepreneurial spirit and, above all, his passion," said Carlotta Mast.
