In the process of establishing her greenhouse operation, Anita identified that there were other unmet needs for new entrepreneurs. [Where there’s a need, there’s Anita.] She developed entrepreneurial programs to support value-added agricultural business – programs which still exist today.

She started her second company, called From the Earth Naturally Ltd., and began developing one of the first functional foods on the market place – a herbal vinegar enhanced with echinacea and ginseng. By conducting educational courses for both professional chefs and the general public, Anita built demand for her product and it found a home in 57 stores within just three months.

By 2002, with her children almost all grown up and leaving home, Anita divorced, sold her business, and started over again. With her daughter at her side, she began building a new life.

Today, Anita is more determined than ever. With Wanda and Lori at her side, she knows her company will become the first all women-owned business to make an impact in North America with their natural health beverage, VIVACA™.

Anita is a proud grandmother of two boys. Her four children are independent and successful [with the same spit and fire that their mother has] and when she talks about them, she beams with pride.
