SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA), a global nutritional supplements company, today announced that in the fourth quarter of 2011 they received 15 national and international awards, bringing the health company's total number of accolades won for the year to 45. USANA has more than doubled the awards they've won since 2010 and quadrupled the amount of awards won in 2009.  USANA's world-class products, strong executive leadership, strategic partnerships with Olympic athletes, and innovative sales and marketing tools have demonstrated they continue to be a leader in the industry.

"USANA works hard to be the best, and it's important that our company, employees, and associates are recognized for their dedication and hard-work," said Dan Macuga, chief communications officer.

In this competitive industry and current economic climate, many companies struggle to find longevity. This year, USANA is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

"Each award given to USANA for outstanding work is valued and appreciated, but a handful of awards won this year stand out in particular," said Kevin Guest, president of North America.
