Source-Make-Deliver: Vitamin C Plus

Thanks to a new Amway website, anyone can see examples of our products moving through the development process, from the selection of the raw ingredients to the delivery of the finished product to the warehouse.

For example, here is the process for our NUTRILITE Vitamin C Plus Extended Release:

SOURCE: Brazil

Our Vitamin C Plus Extended Release is a plant-enhanced vitamin C supplement made with natural acerola cherries grown at Amway’s agribusiness operation in Brazil. Acerola cherries are one of nature’s most concentrated sources of vitamin C. Natural antioxidants from lemons, oranges and grapefruits also are included in Vitamin C Plus Extended Release. Our  Brazil farm features 4,102 acres where we grow and process organic acerola cherries, watercress, picao preto and other tropical herbs and fruit.

MAKE: California, U.S.

The plant ingredients in Vitamin C Plus Extended Release come from dried whole foods, such as acerola cherries, lemons, oranges and grapefruit. For acerola cherries, our process includes an early harvest, the selection of improved varieties and color-sorting for fruit that is highest in vitamin C. We also use a gentle concentration process right on the farm, the majority of which is completed via reverse osmosis. This process only removes water, not phytonutrients, and avoids heat to minimize loss of vitamin C. The powder is packaged in sealed drums and shipped out to our manufacturing plant in California to be used in our products.

Computer-controlled scales measure the exact weight and amount of each concentrate powder. The final mixture is compressed into tablets, coated with a special solution for easier swallowing and inspected closely for cracks or chips. Finished tablets are sealed in specially-designed containers to maintain freshness.

DELIVER: Several markets, including Georgia, U.S.

NUTRILITE Vitamin C Plus Extended Release is offered in several markets, including the United States.  Deliveries to locations in the U.S. are made primarily by truck to four warehouses throughout the country. Shipping times vary based on location. Vitamin C Plus Extended Release arrives in the central part of the country in roughly one week. Off-shore deliveries made by sea to our center in Hawaii can take up to four weeks.

GLOBAL APPEAL

Starring iCook

In Ukraine, expectant mothers often tune into the popular TV program 9 Months for all kinds of advice about pregnancy and new parenthood.

Recently 9 Months fans learned about cooking fast and healthy family meals from a chef at Ukraine’s Amway Academy, which provides online and instructor-led learning opportunities for Amway Business Owners and customers as well as ABO certification programs.

Chef Andrew Kubrak appeared on four segments, showing viewers how to prepare easy, healthy and tasty dishes using iCook stainless and nonstick cookware. He demonstrated how the special iCook VITALOK low-moisture cooking method preserves nutrients and makes meals appetizing.

New segments of 9 Months air weekly on Ukraine’s TBi channel (in English: TVI). TBi is carried by 85 percent of Ukraine’s cable networks and is viewed in about 60 percent of Ukrainian cities with populations over 50,000.

Last year, the Amway Academy provided more than 200,000 ABO and customer training contacts—including some tasty lessons from Chef Kubrak.

Click here to view a 45-minute iCook segment. It’s in Ukrainian, but isn’t the language of food universal?

WHAT GREAT KUDOS

March 26th, 2014 | Posted by Craig Deane in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

How we did it

There’s no better way to learn than from someone who’s been there and done that.

That’s the thinking behind the Harvard Business Review’s (HBR) “How I Did It” column, which gives CEOs a platform to share how they tackled a challenge and what other companies can learn from their experience.

Last year Amway President Doug DeVos penned a piece for the column about how Amway reinvented itself in China to not just survive, but thrive.  Doug detailed four key lessons – understand the market, stay true to your mission, build strong, trusting relationships and take a long-term view – that helped Amway become the industry leader in China.

Doug’s contribution was recently selected as one of the best of these columns by the editors of HBR and included in a new book, “How I Did It: Lessons from the Front Lines of Business.”

The book also includes lessons by the leaders of General Electric, Google, Prada, Zappos and other admired companies.

“How I Did It” is available now at bookstores, online and through Harvard Business Publishing.
