AtlanTick Owners Make the Game Changers list: Leading companies. Powered by women.
Lisa Learning and Nancy Thompson, the co-owners of AtlanTick Repellent Products Inc., have been named among the top female leaders in Canada's growing natural and bio-based industries. The company is one of over 100 featured in Game Changers: Leading Companies, a report powered by women and led by Natural Products Canada (NPC).
NPC is a national organization dedicated to supporting bio-based innovation, and their Game Changers report highlights the impact of female leadership in Canadian companies creating economic and social change through natural and bio-based products.
“These women-led companies are developing everything from sustainable plastics and planet-friendly chemicals to healthy food and beverages,” said Shelley King, CEO of Natural Products Canada. “They are all united by their passion to create products that are healthier for people and the planet.”
AtlanTick Repellent Products Inc. creates, manufactures, and sells tick and insect repellent products made with natural ingredients that are safe for the environment. Lisa and Nancy's company was selected based on their innovation, sustainability, and growth relative to their stage of development.
“Being recognized on this list is a true honor,” said Lisa Learning, CEO of AtlanTick Repellent Products Inc. “We are grateful for the support we've received from Natural Products Canada and our customers, and we are proud to be a part of a growing movement to create products that are healthy for both people and the planet.”
The Game Changers report showcases companies from across Canada that offer products designed for consumers seeking new options for health and wellness, including food, beauty and personal care items, as well as industrial products such as bio resins and biopesticides that help corporations reduce their carbon footprint and meet sustainability goals.
TD Bank is the official sponsor of the initiative, aligning with their Women in Enterprise (WE) program designed to support females in business, including an accredited WE bankers program.
“We hope this platform opens up new opportunities and helps to inspire the next generation of women in business,” said Krystal van Westerop, National Manager of Women in Enterprise at TD Bank.
Lisa and Nancy's recognition as female leaders in the natural and bio-based industries is a testament to their dedication to creating innovative and sustainable solutions for tick and insect control. Their work at AtlanTick Repellent Products Inc. is making a real difference, and we can't wait to see what they'll achieve next.
