Food Industry Group to Honor Drake Sadler at Pioneer Award

By September 29, 2015 Uncategorized

The 2nd Annual Food Industry Group Pioneer Award will honor Traditional Medicinals co-founder Drake Sadler on November 3rd. Sonoma County BEST and the Food Industry Group are happy to honor Drake for his support in establishing and supporting the specialty food and agriculture industry in the North Bay.

In the 1960s, Drake met herbalist Rosemary Gladstar. The couple shared a vision of herbalism for North America, and in 1974 they co-founded Traditional Medicinals. Since then, the company has grown to become one of the largest natural foods companies in the North Bay, all while continuing the original vision of providing health through herbal supplements.

The 2nd Annual Food Industry Group Pioneer Award takes place November 3rd from 5pm-7pm at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek in Santa Rosa and is sponsored by Pisenti & Brinker LLP and Traditional Medicinals. This event is held the night before Specialty Food and Ag Conference which takes place the following morning, co-hosted by Bank of America and North Bay Business Journal. This is an invite-only event to all BEST investors, partners, and FIG members. Register online at
