Mannatech to Officially Launch Mission 5 Million Movement in Branson, Mo.
Company Adopts Social Entrepreneurship to Help Fight Global Malnutrition
COPPELL, Texas -- August 29, 2013
Mannatech®, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX) the pioneer of nutritional
glycobiology and leading innovator of naturally-sourced supplements based on
Real Food Technology^® solutions, is announcing the official launch of its
Mission 5 Million^SM movement at the Branson2013 national conference this
weekend in Branson, Missouri. The Mission 5 Million movement, or M5M^SM,
represents the company’s commitment to linking five million consumers with
five million children in need to help fight global malnutrition.
According to the World Health Organization, approximately five million
children are affected each year from issues related to undernourishment.
Mission 5 Million marks a significant shift in Mannatech’s core business
model, and its full commitment to social entrepreneurship specifically to help
address the problem of undernourishment. Leveraging the same technology used
in creating their premium supplements based on Real Food Technology solutions,
Mannatech created PhytoBlend™ powder, a potent product specifically designed
to bolster the nutritional value of the food provided to children by relief
organizations worldwide. Every time a Mannatech product is purchased on
automatic order, a donation is made to MannaRelief^†, a non-profit
organization, who distributes PhytoBlend powder to orphanages and relief
organizations all over the world. This simple approach allows anyone to help
nourish the world by nourishing themselves with Mannatech products.
In addition, Mannatech created the world’s first revenue-sharing rewards
program for social entrepreneurship, allowing participants to earn income for
championing the M5M movement by connecting consumers to Mannatech products.
Combined with the company’s global infrastructure and patented product
technologies, this revenue-sharing approach allows the company to actively
incentivize those who champion the cause, aiming to shorten the timeline of
reaching five million children in need.
The Branson2013 event, themed “Hope for the Future,” will feature
world-renowned and recently retired pediatric neurosurgeon, as well as
humanitarian and best-selling author,Dr. Ben Carson. Other presentations
focusing on different aspects of the Mission 5 Million movement will be shared
throughout the weekend. In addition, the company will launch several new
web-based tools and share some upcoming product announcements that will
further ignite the M5M movement.
“By combining the revolutionary technology that our products are based on with
the passion and vision to make an impact in the fight against global
malnutrition, we are marking the beginning of a new era of hope and health
that’s going to change the world,” said Dr. Robert Sinnott, CEO and Chief
Science Officer. “I’m simply proud to be a part of this company, and a part of
