Since Young Living’s founding by Gary Young in 1993 in Riverton, Utah, the company has transformed from a sole organic herb farm and distillery to the world leader in essential oils and wellness solutions with operations across the globe. This growth would have never been possible without our wonderful Utah family and we are committed to giving back to the community and continually growing our roots here.
We recently announced our seven-year plan to increase our presence in Utah by creating over 445 new jobs right here in Utah County, the birthplace of our company. The total salaries of the jobs we are creating, including medical benefits, are expected to amount to over 125 percent of Utah County’s average income.
Our expansion plans follow a period of incredible progress with Young Living growing an impressive 112 percent in 2014. This time of growth has allowed us to continue expanding our services and product lines while maintaining our steadfast commitment to provide the same top-level quality products our customers have come to expect and deserve.
Young Living’s growth would not be possible without our passion to produce the highest quality products. Our proprietary Seed to Seal® process embodies the seriousness of our dedication to environmental stewardship, purity, and authenticity by ensuring that all of our products are completely free of synthetic chemicals.
As our company expands to reach national and international audiences, we are proud to call Utah our home. Young Living Chief Operating Officer Travis Ogden has said many times, “Our roots are in Utah. We are committed to the state and continue to expand our reach and contribution.”
Utah residents and employees have been an integral part of Young Living’s transformation to the company it is today, and we look forward to keeping the momentum going with the community that has stood by us during the past 20 years.
