Health and wellness company 4Life Research recently received the Nutrition Business Journal’s 2013 Philanthropy Award, in recognition of its efforts to supply nutrition, shelter and education to children around the world.
The NBJ awards honor companies that promote healthy, educated consumers and sustainable business practices. From a pool of more than 300 entries, 4Life stood out for its nonprofit Foundation 4Life® and for-profit 4Life Fortify® programs. 4Life employees and distributors participate in a variety of service projects through Foundation 4Life, which develops long-term partnerships with orphanages and childcare centers.
The company’s 4Life Fortify nutrition program supplies meal packs that combine high-quality ingredients with a nutritional complex of vitamins and minerals, as well as 4Life Transfer Factor. 4Life facilitates donations of purchased meal packs to nonprofit partners such as Feed The Children. Through the program, the company has undertaken to provide 3 million donated meals in 10 impoverished countries around the world.
