Orem, Utah—January 27, 2014—doTERRA INTERNATIONAL, LLC, was recently awarded the 2013 Utah Valley Business of the Year by the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce.
The Utah Valley Business of the Year Award is determined each year by a vote of the members of the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber members nominate local businesses, which are then narrowed down to five finalists by the Chamber's Business Development Committee. Members then vote on the finalists. Past winners of the Business of the Year Award include Kneader's (2013), NuSkin International (2012), and Adobe (2011).
"Utah Valley is brimming with outstanding businesses," said Val Hale, President and CEO of the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce. "For these award winners to rise to the top certainly says a great deal about how they are viewed among the business community. We congratulate each of them."
