Bigelow Tea announces its recent certification by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) which confirms that Bigelow Tea is a woman-owned and operated small business in the United States.
Bigelow Tea, founded in 1945 by Ruth Campbell Bigelow, has a history of pioneering excellence in the tea industry. Today, through the leadership of third generation president and CEO, Cindi Bigelow, the company’s core values of care, compassion and drive are the cornerstone of Bigelow Tea’s success and corporate culture. For eighty years, the family’s guiding principles have never wavered and align with the mission of WBENC’s certification which enables and supports growth and innovation for women-run organisations.
Over the past two decades, Cindi Bigelow, who succeeded her father David C Bigelow in operating the family business, has continued to expand within the tea industry. Additionally, being a good corporate citizen continues to be a priority for the organisation.
“It has been a blessing and a privilege to run my family’s company for the last twenty years,” said third generation president and CEO, Cindi Bigelow. “Receiving the WBENC certification is something I take seriously as I continue to operate the organisation in the way my family has guided me to, as an ethical business that looks after people and the community, always with a focus on doing the right thing while leading with care, compassion and drive.”
