Herbalife (NYSE: HLF), a leading global nutrition company, is proud to announce its recognition as one of the leading companies recognized in LATINO Magazine’s “LATINO 100” Spring 2014 issue, an annual listing that spotlights companies providing the most viable business opportunities for U.S. Latinos.
“We are incredibly honored by LATINO Magazine’s acknowledgment of Herbalife as one of the top corporate supporters of the growing U.S. Latino population,” said Ibi Fleming, senior vice president and managing director, Herbalife North America. “Latinos across the country have historically embraced Herbalife’s nutrition products since the company’s founding in 1980. Their success is a tribute to the hard work of our members and a clear demand among Latinos for a healthy lifestyle. We are also proud to be acknowledged for our work in fostering and ensuring workplace diversity in our corporate culture.”
Herbalife recognition in LATINO Magazine’s respected “LATINO 100” list brings awareness to the company’s unique distribution platform and business practices as well as its robust, loyal Latino membership which comprises over half of Herbalife U.S. business. Herbalife® products are sold by independent members, some of whom join to supplement their income through the income opportunity available. The Company provides numerous protections for members and consumers alike, including low initial investment and a fully refundable average start-up cost of $59.25, as well as an industry-leading and comprehensive product return policy.
Most notably, the inclusion of Herbalife in the “LATINO 100” listing recognizes the company’s commitment to and continued support of the U.S. Latino community. In a 2013 survey of the U.S. population conducted by Lieberman Research Worldwide and commissioned by Herbalife, 85 percent of Latino participants rated Herbalife “Good,” “Very Good” or “Excellent.”“We are continually inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit, hard work and perseverance of the Latino community and are committed to supporting them through the Herbalife ever-expanding portfolio of nutrition products, business tools, and training,” added Fleming.
