MVP for 2012

March 8, 2013

Every year, the natural food industry gathers in Anaheim for the Natural Products Expo West, a 3-day exposition of all things natural.  There are aisles and aisles of natural products, ranging from pet food and beauty products, to a wide selection of delicious natural foods.  To kick start this year’s Expo West, Follow Your Heart surprised one lucky recipient with the presentation of the inaugural Follow Your Heart MVP award.  And the MVP award went to… Suzanne Valker of NS Sales!

Suzanne Valker is the VP of Client Services for Natural/Specialty Sales, a natural food division of the ACOSTA broker company, located in Southern California.  “Suzanne is the dedicated Client Services Manager for Follow Your Heart and has proven herself as a key part of our sales team.  Her extensive knowledge of the natural food industry as well as her endless positive energy and attitude make it an honor and a privilege to work with her every day.” –Tammy Gall


The MVP award was created to acknowledge and thank that individual who most supported and promoted the Follow Your Heart brand.  “The list was long and the decision was hard, but at the end of the day, Suzanne really stood out as a great partner and we are proud to be able to acknowledge her for that.”



Thank you for your hard work Suzanne, and we can’t wait to continue the success in the years to come.

Retailer of the Year 2012

March 10, 2013

As the Natural Products Expo West began to draw to a close, a group of Mother’s Market team members began to gather around the Follow Your Heart booth.  They were asked to come by to try the new selection of Vegan Gourmet Shreds, but the true purpose of their visit was about to be presented.
