Called to Set Free

Know Your Calling

Everyone needs food and shelter. But many people feel trapped by their economic status and cannot provide the basic necessities for their families. As the President and CEO of his company, NatureSweet, Bryant Ambelang realized he had the power to provide economic freedom to his employees. 

Bryant is the President and CEO of NatureSweet, Ltd., the largest greenhouse producer of tomatoes in North America. Currently, NatureSweet operates seven facilities—six in Mexico and one in the U.S.—and pursues its mission of "unleashing the power of people" through a vertically integrated production model that offers full-time direct employment to over 8,000 associates.  

Bryant realized his calling as the leader of his company was to provide his employees with economic freedom. His employees couldn’t adequately provide for themselves on their salaries. One way he could fulfill his calling to provide for his employees involved setting his employees up for financial security.
