The number-one branded honey company in the U.S. is recognized as an inspiring company that led the North Texas region through the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis and its economic devastation

MCKINNEY, TEXAS – October 27, 2020 – Nature Nate’s Honey Co., the number-one branded honey company in the U.S. and producer of 100% Pure, Raw & Unfiltered Honey, has been named one of North Texas’s Most Inspiring Leaders of 2020 by the Dallas Business Journal.  The award was created this year to honor companies and individuals who made extraordinary contributions to Dallas-Fort Worth business this year amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Nature Nate’s was one of just six companies selected for the prestigious honor.

“I’m so proud of our entire Nature Nate’s family and our tireless and diligent work during these uncertain times. As a company, we set a standard of excellence long before the pandemic. And it’s been an honor to witness the way our entire company rallied together to amplify our strengths, adapt to changing times and share knowledge and experience across every aspect of our business – from hive to bottle and from store shelf to kitchen table,” said Nathan Sheets, Nature Nate’s Founder and CEO. “This year was like no other, but the lessons we’ve learned about selflessness is how we will continue to lead our company, our region and our industry moving forward. If our goal is to make the industrious, brilliant honeybee proud, we are on our way to doing it.”

One of the biggest challenges for companies that manufacture food, like Nature Nate’s Honey Co., is keeping up with the overwhelming demand of people quarantining at home. Over the last several months, Nature Nate’s has worked hard to address the increase in demand, while going above and beyond to take all the necessary precautions to keep its people, partners and consumers safe.

“We are honoring companies and leaders that made tough choices and not only fought for their employee’s livelihoods and the good of the community, but also often for their business lives,” said Rob Schneider, Managing Editor, Dallas Business Journal. “These honorees inspired us, showed us a path on how we can recover from this recession and displayed courage at a time when our collective hope was close to being lost.”

Throughout 2020, Nature Nate’s leveraged its corporate giving initiative, Honey Gives Hope, to bless the lives of those impacted by the pandemic. In the weeks and months following national stay-at-home orders, Nature Nate’s created and partnered with the Salvation Army’s Pantry-to-Pantry initiative to help those impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. In addition, the company donated more than 10,000 honey packets to local healthcare workers and partnered with registered dietitians in the company’s brand ambassador program to ship care packages of Raw Energy packets for distribution at local hospitals and healthcare facilities across the country. Nature Nate’s also donated to and promoted the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, partnered with 7740Dallas Campaign to benefit the local restaurant community and delivered hot meals to women and children’s shelters in the metroplex.

Nature Nate’s will be honored during a special virtual awards program broadcast live on November 19, 2020, and will be featured in a print and digital special publication of the Dallas Business Journal on Friday, November 20, 2020.
