All northwest Iowa residents are invited to the 2006 kickoff meeting of Health and Wellness Company Shaklee at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 14 at the AEA building at 824 Flindt Drive in Storm Lake.
The meeting is part of a year-long celebration of the company's 50-year history as a leading provider of high-quality nutritional supplements and other products and will also feature the vision for Shaklee's future expansion. Attendees will hear a special message from Chief Executive officer Robert Barnett and learn about new products that address important and universal health issues, as well as business-building opportunities in the dynamic health and wellness industry.
"As Shaklee enters its 50th year, we are positioned to initiate an explosive growth phase," said Roger Barnett, Shaklee Corporation's chairman and CEO. "Shaklee offers a unique opportunity to realize personal business rewards and achieve dreams for a better and healthier life while also helping to advance public social and environmental goals."
Since its founding, Shaklee Corporation has led the way in environmental stewardship and social responsibility, improving the well-being of people around the world. One of the first companies to develop a biodegradable cleaner to help reduce pollution, Shaklee Corporation also helped plant one million trees in Asia, and in 2002 became the first Climate Neutral company to receive the Environmental Protection Agency's Climate Protection Award for its production facilities having a net zero impact on climate change.
Dedicated to product quality as well as innovation, Shaklee has invested more more than $250 million in 83,000 annual tests and more than 100 clinical studies to uphold the highest standards for ingredient quality, purity, and efficacy. The company's exceptional nutritional, personal care, beauty, home care, and air purification products have been used by top athletes, environmental researchers, great adventurers and millions of people round the world.
"The philosophy of creating healthier lives by offering the highest quality products while caring for the environment is a heritage that continues to be extremely relevant and influences how we do business," said Ken Hach, Northwest Iowa Shaklee Association president and a Shaklee distributor in Storm Lake. "I enjoy the freedom of managing my own business and time, and appreciate the strong support of a company that wants me to succeed and shares my values about healthy living."
