Nutri-Force Nutrition, a Hispanic-owned nutraceuticals firm, has received the 2013 Good to Great Award in the health-care category from the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce.

"They are my inspiration and have become the catalysts that drive innovation at Nutri-Force Nutrition."
The Good to Great program showcases businesses "that have achieved greatness in their mission and established themselves as industry leaders," according to a release.
The awards are open to all for-profit businesses headquartered in Miami-Dade, Broward or Palm Beach counties that can demonstrate excellent performance over a four-year period.
