Anaheim, CA — Elizabeth Lambert presented Suzanne Shelton with the American Herbal Products Association's (AHPA) Herbal Hero Award at Expo West on March 9th. Shelton is the founding and managing partner of Shelton Group, and was a chair member of the AHPA Communications Committee. Lambert spoke of Shelton's involvement and praised the work she has done with AHPA.

"Suzanne is a tireless advocate for AHPA and the natural products industry and her work has benefited many AHPA member companies," Lambert said.


Shelton herself praised the efforts of AHPA and participating groups that strive to perpetuate the natural product industry.

"I am grateful for all the support I've received from organizations like AHPA over the years and am glad to be able to support them in return," Shelton said. "I particularly appreciate that AHPA looks at how regulations and market changes will impact companies of all sizes, never forgetting that some of the smallest members are also standard bearers of quality and innovation that drive the industry forward."
