Direct Selling Association Recognizes NSP and Synergy as Top Company
Synergy WorldWide’s parent company, Nature’s Sunshine Products (NSP), was recognized by the Direct Selling Association (DSA) as one of the 20 largest direct selling companies in the United States based on 2014 U.S. net sales.
DSA President, Joseph N. Mariano, presented Nature’s Sunshine Chairman and CEO, Gregory L. Probert, with the award at the DSA’s annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas.
“This award is a testament to the great work of our tremendous Synergy Team Members and NSP distributors, and the support that our corporate team provides them,” Probert said. “We have a 43-year history as an innovator and industry leader in the health and wellness sector, and we’re excited to add to that legacy by growing both Nature’s Sunshine and Synergy to new and even greater heights.”
According to the DSA’s 2015 Growth & Outlook Report, the wellness category represents the largest major product group within the direct selling channel, growing from 21.4% in 2007 to 30.1% in 2014.
“It’s no surprise that wellness products continue to lead the direct selling channel,” Probert added. “And with our focus on innovative, science-based, premium quality products, Synergy WorldWide is well- positioned to take advantage of these trends as more people understand and pursue the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.”
“I want to congratulate Nature’s Sunshine and Synergy WorldWide not only for their longevity and track record of success, but also for their devotion to their distributors, customers and the DSA,” Mariano said. “By working together with industry-leading companies like these, we continue to ensure that ethical business practices and customer satisfaction are priorities in the marketplace.”
