Herbalife Celebrates 40 Years of Empowering Health and Wellness in Australia
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - April, 2023 - Herbalife, a premier health and wellness company and community, is celebrating 40 years of helping people achieve their health and wellness goals in Australia. Since its founding in 1983 in the country, the business has been committed to providing high-quality nutrition products and supporting healthy lifestyles through its network of independent distributors as well as supporting a number of charitable organisations.
Herbalife was founded on the premise that we all deserve good nutrition and health, and that belief continues to be at the core of the company's mission. Today, the business offers a wide range of great tasting, science-backed nutrition products, that assist people in getting the right balance of healthy nutrition and eating habits as well as promoting active lifestyles.
Peter Hurley, General Manager/Director for Australia and New Zealand at Herbalife, is highly attuned to the role that the business plays in the ANZ region. He stated: “Our company has never been more relevant as we tackle some of the biggest global trends affecting our citizens. Battling obesity, promoting healthy active lifestyles, addressing the rising cost of healthcare and providing business opportunities for today’s entrepreneurs are key focuses for the business.
"As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are proud of the positive impact we have made on people's lives across our region, and we remain committed to empowering people to live healthier lives and to giving back to the community."
Supporting local charities
Over the past four decades, Herbalife has been dedicated to improving the lives of children in need through the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF). As the not-for-profit established by the company in 1994, HNF partners with charities and organizations around the world to help provide the proper nutrition and education necessary for the wellness of children and communities. In the ANZ region, the business raises money for HNF to support:
- The Infants’ Home Child & Family Services (NSW)
- Lighthouse Foundation (VIC)
- Power Community Limited (SA)
- Sunshine Butterflies (QLD)
- Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation (WA)
- Life Education Trust (NZ)
Herbalife Nutrition Foundation also helps fund relief efforts in response to natural disasters, which in 2020 included financial assistance in response to the devastation caused by that year’s bush fire season in Australia.
“Working with the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation is certainly one of the amazing highlights of what the team and I do within the overall business. We get to see first-hand what the financial support enables our charitable partners to do. To date, HNF has distributed over US$1.2 million across Australia and New Zealand,” Peter Hurley stated.
On the sporting front, Herbalife sponsors more than 200 sporting events, teams, and athletes across the globe. These partnerships are about authenticity and represent so much more than just a name or logo on a jersey. One example is their collaboration with international football star, Cristiano Ronaldo, with whom they launched Herbalife24 CR7 Drive, designed to meet the hydration and training needs of Ronaldo and athletes at all levels.
In Australia, Herbalife has been a major sponsor and nutritional partner of the Western Sydney Wanderers FC since 2014. The partnership stems from a shared passion to make a lasting and positive impact on thousands of fans and members all over Sydney, particularly in the heartland of Western Sydney. As the official nutritional partner to the Western Sydney Wanderers FC squad, their goal is to fuel and educate elite athletes on best practice nutrition for their pre, during and post games and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle both on and off the field.
In addition to helping active people and athletes achieve their goals through its expertise in sports nutrition, Herbalife is also focused on working towards its goal of improving the nutritional habits of all Australians with great tasting, science-backed nutrition products that help people get the right balance of healthy nutrition.
As the business enters its fifth decade in Australia, Herbalife is committed to helping people live their best lives through supporting healthy communities, promoting healthy active lifestyles, and providing strong business opportunities for today’s entrepreneurs.
