Sunwarrior, a leading health and fitness company making vegan protein powder and supplements, is proud to announce they have been ranked in the top 500 growing companies by the prestigious Inc. magazine.
Inc. magazine today ranked Sunwarrior number 395 on its 31st annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
“We’ve been tremendously lucky,” said Russ Crosby, CEO of Sunwarrior. “We’ve had an amazing team come together over the last few years and their hard work has put us on the map with Inc. 500. It’s been a combined effort and I couldn’t be more proud of the people I’m privileged to work with, the company we have built up together, and the products we create.”
The 2012 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 21 to November 15 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a staggering minimum of 770% in sales growth. The Inc. 500’s aggregate revenue is $15.7 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,431 percent. The companies on this year's Inc. 500 employ more than 48,000 people and generated over 40,000 jobs in the past three years.

"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
Founded in 1979 and acquired in 2005 by Mansueto Ventures, Inc. is the only major brand dedicated exclusively to owners and managers of growing private companies, with the aim to deliver real solutions for today’s innovative company builders. Total monthly audience reach for the brand has grown significantly from 2,000,000 in 2010 to over 6,000,000 today.
Sunwarrior’s mission is to illuminate body, mind, and planet. This company was born from the nutritional dreams of three men who wanted to create a plant-based protein powder that would be raw, healthy, and benefit mankind along with the planet mankind occupies.
Sunwarrior has grown since that night 4 years ago at the Sedona Raw Food Festival, offering several raw, vegan products that are perfect for anyone and any lifestyle: protein to build and recover, activated barley for enhanced endurance, supergreens for trace minerals, and liquid ionic mineral complexes that nourish cellular function and boost the immune system.
All energy comes initially from the sun and is captured by the miraculous plants around us. Join us in our mission to share this energy with everyone. Together we truly can transform the planet, one warrior at a time.
