David L. Hardy, the founder and the ‘face’ of Hardy Nutritionals®, knew that the cause he started would outlive him. David built a transition leadership team around him when he founded the company, and as a result, this management team has been running day-to-day operations since then.
David made it a point to take at least one member of this team with him on business trips. This accomplished two important purposes. First, it allowed us to meet David’s colleagues who shared his passion for helping as many people as possible to achieve a greater degree of wellness and a better life for themselves and their personal and professional connections.
Second, and perhaps more important in retrospect, it gave us extensive one-on-one time with a thoughtful mentor and gave us deeper insight into David as a passionate and innovative scientist with a cause!
Our Hardy Nutritionals® product specialists, order fulfillment personnel, scientists, and advisors will continue to work closely with David’s management team to ensure that you have the best researched, highest-quality products and support services to meet your needs.
With David’s untimely passing we feel it is important for you to meet the Hardy Leadership Team. Please know that we share the passion for David’s life’s work, and we are determined to carry it forward.

|“My father David Hardy was an incredibly passionate individual. He saw Hardy Nutritionals® as a means to improve the health and productivity of countless individuals worldwide, and he instilled that vision in each of us. His vision is now our vision. We miss David dearly! The proverbial ‘shoes’ he left us to fill are big. However, as his team we will collectively come together to fill them. We are deeply grateful for his kind and loving example, his thoughtful mentoring and the passion that he instilled in us. We will carry that with us every day as we build upon his legacy!”
