DALLAS, TX (April 23, 2013) – The Southwest Natural Products Association presented its 2013 President’s Award to Essential Formulas Incorporated, distributor of Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics, for its “notable contributions to our industry both as a distributor and behind the scenes.” Rhonda Bone, NPA SW past president and owner of Nature’s Way in San Antonio, Texas and Larry Hutchins NPA board member presented the award to Jolen and Marty Schoor of EFI at NPA-SW, which was held in Dallas, April 13-14.

The Southwest Natural Products Association began presenting the President’s Award annually 7 years ago to an individual or company in the natural products industry who is either a current or past association member and who has made long-time and notable contributions to the industry above and beyond commercial success.

“EFI is a family owned company that has played an active role in the advancement of the natural products industry both at a retail and legislative level,” said Ms. Bone. “We are appreciative of all they have done and continue to do to keep this industry thriving.”
Dallas-based Essential Formulas Incorporated (EFI) was established in 2000 as the sole U.S. distributor of world-renowned microbiologist Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira’s award-winning probiotic products, other dietary supplements and skin care products. A family-owned and operated business, EFI was founded on the philosophy of providing high-quality preventative, supportive and comprehensive pro-health products for the entire family.
