Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Zarbee's Naturals, manufacturer of health and wellness solutions for families and the fastest growing, all-natural, over-the-counter (OTC) medicine brand in the U.S., today announced that Neil Grimmer, co-founder and CEO of Plum Organics, was appointed to the company's board of directors.
“Neil is a mastermind when it comes to developing ideas, products and brands, and we are thrilled that he is joining Zarbee's board of directors,” said Dr. Zak Zarbock, founder of Zarbee's Naturals.
Grimmer currently serves as CEO of Plum Inc. (http://www.plumorganics.com), known in the marketplace as Plum Organics. Grimmer has led the launch of over 100 new and innovative products, making Plum Organics the fastest-growing organic baby and kids food brand in the U.S.
A recent winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award, Grimmer is known as a leader who thinks outside the box - or in this case, the baby food jar. He pioneered the first-to-market eco-pouch that has revolutionized the baby and kids food category. It's a brilliant, portable food pouch that parents know and love, allowing babies and kids to feed themselves mess-free and on-the-go.
“Neil will be a valuable addition to our board. He brings extraordinary experience that aligns perfectly with our mission at Zarbee's,” said Bryce Johnson, CEO of Zarbee's Naturals. “His innovative thinking will be a great contribution to our future growth.”
Zarbee's Naturals continues it thinking outside the traditional medicine cabinet, with effective and natural solutions for families. This year, Zarbees will introduce five new products, including Zarbee's Children’s Sleep, the first-ever children's sleep aid that is formulated and recommended by a doctor. In addition, Zarbee's Seasonal Relief will be available this fall, the first clinically proven, natural strength product to provide seasonal congestion relief without drowsiness. These new products, along with New Baby Cough Syrup and New Children's Cough for Mucus will offer families a strong defense to support fall and winter wellness.
“I am honored to join Zarbee's board of directors and work with this brand I believe in,” Grimmer said. “I am passionate about natural products that encourage families to live a healthy lifestyle and Zarbee's is a fresh leader in this arena. I look forward to collaborating with their team of thought-leaders and parents like me who care about natural and healthy options for our families.”
