Motherlove Earns “Women’s Business Enterprise” Women-Owned Certification

 After more than 30 years of supporting expecting and new moms with a line of trusted herbal remedies, Motherlove Herbal Company is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council-West (WBEC West), a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

“Since our founding in the ’80s, Motherlove has always been woman-owned and women-led. This certification underlines our commitment to supporting women,” said Motherlove CEO Silencia Cox. “My mother founded this company to serve women and mothers during their most precious time of life. Along with my sisters and amazing staff (the majority of which are women) we continue that mission.”

The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the WBEC-West is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.

Benefits of the certification include increased visibility as an official woman-owned businesses (appealing to companies who require a percentage of their work to be contracted to women), increased ability to be awarded government contracts in industries that are typically underfunded and overlooked, training and educational programs exclusive to members, access to leads for bids and proposals, and more.
