Reliv International today announced that it has officially opened in France. The event celebrating this milestone will take place April 12-13 in Paris at the Novotel Pont de Sevres. France becomes the nutritional supplement manufacturer’s sixth country of operation in Europe and 16th overall.
“Our business in Europe is booming, and France is a big part of that,” said Ryan Montgomery, Reliv President. “Reliv Europe has recorded five straight years of sustained growth and shows no signs of slowing down. Making France our 16th country of operation will provide added opportunities, momentum and increased operational efficiencies.”
Reliv’s net sales in Europe jumped 72.7% from 2011 to 2012 after climbing 80.4% the previous year. The number of Reliv distributors in Europe mirrors that sales growth, increasing 77.4% from 2010 to 2011 and then 79.7% from 2011 to 2012.
“Europe is our hottest market and we are committed to fostering continued expansion in the region,” added Montgomery. “We have invested in staffing and infrastructure in Europe, including a new office and warehouse, in anticipation of continued growth.”
Reliv will mark the occasion with a special event open to all on April 12-13 featuring Montgomery, Reliv Europe Managing Director Eric Vill and leading distributors from throughout Europe. The event will start with a Reliv business opportunity meeting at 7:30pm Friday night followed by a full day’s agenda starting at 9:30am on Saturday that includes workshops, guest speakers and special presentations.
“This is an event not to be missed for anyone looking for a solution in these challenging times,” Vill said. “Reliv offers what people today need most: better health and financial freedom. That’s why Reliv’s business opportunity is exploding in Europe right now. I encourage you to attend this event or look us up online to learn how Reliv can help you lead a better life starting today. “
