USANA Accolades: The Elite Eleven of ’11

Written by on January 5, 2012 in Accolades, USANA, Why USANA? with 9 Comments

For those of you who don’t know, USANA was on a roll this past year and accumulated an astonishing 45 awards [cue applause]. That’s 30 more than we received in 2010 [ignite fireworks].

Impressive, right? I mean, I don’t intend to toot our own horn, but TOOOT.

Anyway, as much as I would love to list each individual award for your viewing pleasure, I’m not going to, because I like to leave people wanting more, like most episodes of Dexter.

Instead, many of you will be able to read the full article in the upcoming issue of our award-winning USANA magazine. That’s right, a winner to showcase more winners.

Until then, however, I will leave you with what we believe to be the cream of the crop, the best of the best, the Dallas Mavericks of 2011.

With that said, on behalf of the Academy, we would like to take this time to thank our parents, devoted readers and the Big Man upstairs…

Without further ado, I give you the Elite Eleven of ’11.

Best of State: Dietary Supplements, Personal Care Products, & Nutritional Beverage

Because USANA excels in its endeavors, uses innovative approaches and methods, and simply contributes to a better quality of life in the great state of Utah, several of our products were recognized as the best in the beehive. This past year we secured medals for best Dietary Supplements (7th win since 2003), Personal Care Products/Cosmetics (4th win since 2007 for Sensé), and Health/Nutritonal Beverage (3rd win since 2009 for Rev3 Energy®).

MarCom Awards: Marketing/Promotion Campaign — Product Launch

Remember that book, The Healthy Home: Simple Truths to Protect Your Family from Hidden Household Dangers that USANA’s founder and CEO wrote? You know, the one that became a New York Times Best-Seller? Well, the efforts of our communications department didn’t go unnoticed either, earning a golden statuette for its extraordinary product launch plan of THH.

What a Year!

Well, there you have it. I hope you’re as excited as we are about what we accomplished in 2011.

Also, a special thanks to the magnificent Mallory Moger for entering USANA in to the countless categories and everyone who helped make USANA a force to be reckoned with this past year. Here’s to breaking our own record in 2012!
