Brewster, MA (PressExposure) October 27, 2009 -- Shaklee Corporation, the leading natural nutrition company in the United States, is pleased to announce the launch of Shaklee China. The company held a ribbon cutting ceremony last month to commemorate the opening of its newest international office at the Shaklee China headquarters in Beijing. Shaklee is one of several U.S. companies to have successfully been granted a Direct Selling license in China but the only company with a license that has not yet operated a business in China before.
"The launch of Shaklee China represents an incredible next step in the process of expanding Shaklee around the world," says Shaklee Chairman and CEO Roger Barnett. "We believe we will make a significant impact in the health and lifestyle of many, many people, as well as the planet, through this expansion, and are delighted to welcome China to the growing Shaklee family."
Among the attendees at the event were the new Distributors in China who were recognized for achieving Business Leader status. Joseph Lee, General Manager for Shaklee China, who chaired the ceremony stated, "We are proud we have launched Shaklee China and are eager to grow rapidly here. Being one of the leading global nutritional brands and having a 53 year track record of success producing high quality products, we surely feel welcomed by health conscious Chinese consumers."
Shaklee has invested millions of dollars in China through establishing two manufacturing facilities, a flagship service center, 18 pick-up centers throughout Beijing and corporate office. The same high quality products in the US and other markets are available in China including, Vita-leaÂ®, the CinchÂ® Weight Management line, NutriWhiteÂ® skin care line, and Get CleanÂ® nontoxic, natural, home care products.
Shaklee China joins Shaklee's existing international operations in Mexico, Canada, Japan, Malaysia and Taiwan. Shaklee Gold Ambassadors are qualified to be distributors in all these countries.
