Mission 5 Million Movement Accelerates Connection to Five Million
Children in Need
COPPELL, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 11, 2013--
Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX),
the leading innovator and provider of nutritional supplements based on Real
Food Technology® solutions, announced its
plans to support its Mission 5 Million movement by completely
transitioning its business into a Social Entrepreneurship model at its
national MannaQuest℠ Branson event on August 30, 2013. Mission 5
Million, or M5M, represents Mannatech’s mission to link five million
consumers of its glyconutrient, food-based nutritional supplements with
five million children in need. As a Social Entrepreneurship company,
Mannatech has created a nutritional supplement powder specifically
designed to help in the fight against global malnutrition. Anytime a
consumer purchases a Mannatech product, a donation of nutritional
supplementation is provided for a child in need.
According to the World Health Organization, about one third of all child
deaths are linked to malnutrition. Since 2010, Mannatech has donated
more than 12 million servings of its PhytoBlend™ powder in 15 different
countries through its original Give for Real® program.
Building on this foundation, the launch of M5M is a bold, mission-driven
shift to focus Mannatech’s business model and further undergird its core
values and corporate vision. Mannatech is the first Social
Entrepreneurship company offering a leverage-based incentive program for
those who enlist to champion its cause.
The official transition will take place on August 30, 2013 at
Mannatech’s national MannaQuest event in Branson, Missouri. Many
Mannatech corporate and field speakers, as well as some special featured
speakers soon to be announced, will highlight the event. Extended
presentations and training regarding the company’s programs and products
will also be featured at the event.
"I am honored to serve this great company as we take this giant step
forward,” said Bo Short, President of Business and Field Development.
“Being able to financially reward people that champion our cause enables
us to accelerate our mission to achieve an even greater impact. The
ability to change YOUR world and THE world at the exact same time is a
powerful and significant paradigm."
Dr. Robert Sinnott, CEO and Chief Science Officer, added, “Mannatech has
always been a company with a big heart and a big purpose. What’s
different now is the clarity and focus of our mission, and the means and
method by which we are setting out to make it a reality. That’s what M5M
represents. We truly believe it has the ability to change the world.”
Mannatech was founded in 1994, built upon the disruptive discovery of
glyconutrients. The company went on to pioneer products based on Real
Food Technology solutions, an approach to nutritional supplementation
that uses real-food sources. Mannatech applies these same innovative
technologies to aid malnourished children around the globe.
