Winners to Be Celebrated at Gala Event on 19 October in Vienna, Austria
ADA, MICH. – 26 August 2019 – Nutrilite, the world’s No. 1 selling vitamins and dietary supplements brand,* was recently named the winner of two Stevie® Awards in the 16th Annual International Business Awards®.
These awards highlight the success of the recently launched Nutrilite Traceability Program and include a PR Best in Class gold Stevie Award for the campaign’s pure, safe and effective videos and a silver Stevie Award for the overall program in the consumer brand experience of the year category.
“We know consumers globally are eager to see how their food and supplements are made – especially the millennial generation,” said Kanan Banerjee, Amway Vice President for Global Nutrition. “At Nutrilite we have been doing traceability for 85 years so we are delighted to be able to share the behind the scenes so ABOs can share how our 9 steps are unlike anyone else’s – the level of scrutiny and care that goes into help provide families with the pure, safe and effective supplements. And to be recognized for this effort makes me both grateful and incredibly proud of our teams.”
The Nutrilite Traceability Program was developed as an educational tool for Amway’s private distributor network, or Amway Business Owners (ABOs), to use to offer transparency and teach their customers about the importance of choosing the right supplement brand for their families. The Pure, Safe, and Effective videos within the tool illustrate the many steps the company takes to ensure they are delivering the very best to their customers.
“The communication about the origins of the supplement is not easy, it is a challenge to provide relevant and useful content to consumers, but in this case [Nutrilite] successfully implemented an easily understandable story,” said one member of the Stevie Awards panel of judges.
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small – are eligible to submit nominations. The 2019 IBAs received entries from organizations in 74 nations and territories.
