"We were surprised and honored to receive this prestigious award and, at the same time, also proud to see that our efforts to invest in research are acknowledged," said Andreas Suter, head of medicine and product development at Bioforce AG. "We share [Prof. Tyler's] views on phytotherapy, that the use [of] herbal medicine must not only be based on fascination but also on sound scientific data."

"Bioforce is a rare company in the global herbal community," said ABC Founder and Executive Director Mark Blumenthal. "The company employs the highest quality levels of sustainable farming practices while embracing the rich traditions of European herbal medicine, combining it with modern scientific research. These concepts—sustainability, tradition, and research—are at the core of the company's ethics and practices. Bioforce's continued investment in research is consistent with Prof. Varro Tyler's wish that all herb companies dedicate a portion of their revenues to researching the mechanisms and/or the efficacy of their botanical products."

The late Prof. Tyler—who has been described as one of the most respected men in late 20th century herbal medicine and pharmacognosy (the study of medicines of natural origin, usually from plants)—was an early trustee of ABC and the dean of the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Purdue University and vice-president of academic affairs
