Mannatech, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX), the leading innovator and provider of naturally sourced supplements based on Real Food Technology® solutions, officially pre-launched its newest product, NutriVerus™ powder, in two of its global markets at Mannatech Vision Program (MVP) events for both Korean and Taiwanese sales Associates. The event was held on May 15–16, 2012, at both the Mannatech Korea corporate office and at EL Tower in Yangjae-dong in Seoul. In preparation for both markets’ launch of NutriVerus powder over the next few months, more than 1,200 Mannatech Associates and staff came together to further educate themselves on Mannatech’s Real Food Technology solutions. NutriVerus powder, which launched in the United States on May 1, is the first of its kind. This nutrient-dense powder is loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, glyconutrients, stabilized rice bran, and organic fruits and vegetables all in one product—and all sourced from real food sources. Korean and Taiwanese Associates heard from field leaders, as well as from Dr. Stephen Boyd, Consulting Director of Medical Affairs, who conducted three lectures regarding NutriVerus powder. The event also guided sales Associates through vital leadership training and strategic planning for further success in Mannatech’s Asian markets. “We’ve been excited and encouraged by the growth and leadership shown in our Asian markets,” said Dr. Robert Sinnott, Mannatech CEO and Chief Science Officer. “These MVP events are evidence of great momentum for the company in both Korea and Taiwan. Combining Mannatech’s newest products and programs with our Korean and Taiwanese Associates’ commitment set the stage for an exciting rest of 2012.” NutriVerus powder is available in powder form, and is designed to be flavor-neutral. This innovative approach allows consumers to add the product easily to anything they eat or drink, boosting the nutrition of anything they consume.
