We’re very excited to share a recent profile of NAT CEO Ken Barker in Toronto’s Financial Post. In the story, reporter John Shmuel discusses the way Ken’s vision of how an organic cotton alternative could penetrate more industries than apparel has helped NAT land some significant partnerships with global brands such as HanesBrands and Levi Strauss & Co.  “There isn’t a category or industry we’re not engaged in,” Ken is quoted as saying in the article. “We have the first viable alternative to cotton, and we’re making sure everyone knows that.” Read the entire profile, including Ken’s tips for successful partnerships, read the full story here.
