BLISSFIELD, Mich., Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Uckele Health & Nutrition is honored to announce the company has ranked 2,864 on the Inc 500/5000 list of the fastest-growing, private companies in America. With this accomplishment, Uckele joins the rarified company of enterprises who have appeared on the list multiple times, many of which have grown to become national icons. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent-minded entrepreneurs.
Jane Berentson, Editor for Inc., stated, "More than ever, this year's list is a testament to the creativity, resilience and tenacity of America's top entrepreneurs." Inc. 5000 project manager, Jim Melloan added, "Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate. That's why the list is so eagerly anticipated every year."
