Reliv International, Inc., a nutrition and direct selling company, announced today that it is expanding into Indonesia. With the opening, Reliv now conducts business in 15 countries.
"This opening expands our footprint in Southeast Asia, where we already conduct business in the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore," said Robert L. Montgomery, chairman, president and chief executive officer.
"Our distributors in the region have strong cross-border ties among friends, families and business associates. Our distributors have been eager to develop their businesses in Indonesia, and this opening gives them that opportunity," Montgomery said.
The opening of Indonesia, which has an estimated population of 218 million people, gives Reliv distributors the opportunity to introduce the company to the largest country in Southeast Asia.
Indonesia is the world's 23rd largest direct-selling market, with annual retail sales of $669 million a year by direct-selling companies, according to the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations. Approximately 5.8 million people in Indonesia work as direct sellers.
Reliv's first product in Indonesia will be Innergize!(R), the company's isotonic sports drink, and more products are expected to be introduced soon.
Reliv products combine a wide range of nutrients designed to work together to offer greater benefits than the nutrients would offer individually. The products have won loyal, dedicated consumers around the world.
In addition, Reliv offers an affordable home-based business opportunity along with tools, training and support to help the company's distributors succeed.
