September 8, 2011 — Standard Process Inc. has been named an Inc. 5000 honoree again for 2011. This marks the fifth consecutive year Standard Process has made the list, and also puts the company on the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll, which names companies who have appeared on the list five or more times.
The Inc. 5000 list ranks qualifying companies according to percentage revenue growth over a three-year-period. For 2011, companies were judged on reported revenue growth from 2007 through 2010, the height of the economic recession. During this time, Standard Process reported a 25 percent growth in revenue.
“Being named an Inc. 5000 honoree for the fifth consecutive year is an amazing accomplishment,” said Charles C. DuBois, president of Standard Process. “And to have achieved it during one the most challenging economic environments is a testament to how hard our employees and sales force work every day.
Standard Process manufactures whole food supplements using many ingredients grown on its 420-acre certified organic farm in Palmyra, Wis. The DuBois/Wisniewski family is the third generation to own and operate the 82-year-old company. They continue to produce supplements in compliance with the whole food philosophy of Standard Process’ founder, Dr. Royal Lee, using the Food and Drug Administration’s good manufacturing practices.
To qualify for the Inc. 5000 list, companies must be based in the United States, privately held, and independent (not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies), and have generated at least $100,000 in revenue in 2007 and at least $2 million in revenue in 2010.
