Why the name Ameriden?
Before Ameriden® International, Inc. was formed, the founder and CEO, Richard Hall, was active in the Nursery & Landscape trades for over 30 years. Due to his extensive botanical knowledge, his company was contracted to harvest and process olive leaf for the first commercially produced olive leaf extract in the USA in 1990.
It quickly became obvious that people were looking for effective alternatives and Ameriden® International, Inc. was born to meet that demand.
When searching for a company name in 1995 we wanted a name that would convey to you our core philosophy. After careful consideration, we chose “Ameriden” which stands for American (ameri) family (den). We believe that all who come to our door should be treated as family, after all what would Ameriden® be without you? We know, the name doesn’t sound like an herbal or botanical supplement company; however, we remain committed to providing more than just consumable products.
