Date:1/9/2014

Novato, CA (PRWEB) January 09, 2014

The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas, is proud to announce Ron Rubin, Minister of Tea, has been selected as the 2014 Leadership Award Winner by the Specialty Food Association. A panel of specialty food professionals and industry influencers chose Rubin out of 66 nominees across the three categoris for going ‘above and beyond’ in advancing food standards in society and society itself by creating social, economic and environmental impact through innovation and vision.

Each year, the Specialty Food Association recognizes business leaders in three categories (Citizenship, Business Leadership and Vision) whose work is exceptional in these arenas:

  • Ethics
  • Professionalism
  • Transparency
  • Practices and business models
  • Advancing food standards
  • Championing positive role of food in society

“It is truly an honor to be recognized by the Specialty Food Association for our efforts to help advance best practices in the food industry as well as creating economic opportunity and improving the quality of life for food industry personnel,” said Ron Rubin. “Our focus as the leading specialty tea company has always been, and will continue to be, sustainability, health, balance and well-being for our ministers (employees), citizens (customers) and the community.”

Ron Rubin’s life story is one of innovation, entrepreneurship, education and philanthropy. Known for his intellectual curiosity and a strong creative drive, Ron Rubin sparked a specialty tea revolution in 1994 when he purchased The Republic of Tea from the creators of Banana Republic. Since then, the company has become one of the fastest-growing and best known high-end tea brands in the country.

The Republic of Tea scours the planet’s tea-growing gardens, farms and estates looking for the highest quality leaves to put in their premium products. The company offers over 300 premium teas, herbs, iced teas, tea gift sets and teaware and has been named one of the “Best Places to Work” by Outside Magazine two years in a row.

Rubin believes in investing in his company, his employees and his community.

The Republic of Tea, and Rubin individually, actively support worthy organizations like Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Action to Hunger, Room to Read, Sunny Hills Services and The Ethical Tea Partnership.

The Specialty Food Association will honor Ron Rubin at a special ceremony at the 2014 Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. The show takes place Jan. 19 – 21, 2014, at the Moscone Center.
