What is the future of Juice Plus+ company?

A different event from Juice Plus+

Fantastic! Good morning! It’s absolutely amazing to be here in front of 3,100 people from Italy and Spain and the Juice Plus family. It’s an amazing privilege to be here to represent the company in front of you all. I have the privilege to talk to you about Juice Plus and what Juice Plus means and who Juice Plus is as a business. It’s just the start for your day. You have an amazing event planned for you today, I’ve looked at the agenda, it’s fantastic! With great recognition and some really amazing speakers for today. So I’ll start by introducing the company to you. Who is Juice Plus? We have a mission. The mission of our company is to inspire healthy living around the world.


Juice Plus+

And to do that, we have six core beliefs: Longevity, authenticity, quality, community, simplicity, and approachability. Now I’m going to refer to each one of those in more detail, but this is the beliefs that we and all the Pitts members of the company go to when their boss is away. If they’re thinking about how to take decisions we focus on these core beliefs when making decisions for our business.

Juice Plus+ Longevity

  1. Martin is an example of longevity. J. Martin is our founder. He’s the American founder based in Memphis, Tennessee who created this business 48 years ago. He started the business with a 500 dollar investment and since that time we have turned over billions. And this is all down to the ingenuity and talents of that man Mr. J. Martin. Longevity. What else does longevity mean to us as a company? Longevity means personal growth. Personal growth for you as individuals and personal growth for every member of the Juice Plus community. Personal growth can mean many things to you, depending on what you want to achieve in your life. But we, more than anything, consider ourselves to be a personal growth company. Longevity also means embracing the future. Dan Holtzman is going to be speaking to you later on today and we have a five-year plan for our business. We have an amazing plan which we are constantly developing and developing. We see over the next five years how we can change, move this business forward and create what we call a hybrid between economics and direct sales. We make ourselves, we plan to make Juice Plus in the future a hybrid of the two. Like the Uber of healthy living. So we have a five-year plan for the transition of this company in towards e-commerce. That’s longevity! Longevity also means stability. We have, in our organization we’re represented in 28 countries, we have over 500 employees in 12 offices around the world. We have been here for 48 years and we’re here to stay. So in addition to that slide, I have some new information, which is as of last month the Juice Plus European business represents 56% of the global turnover. Thank you! That is amazing! To think that that has been achieved pretty much over the last four years and a lot of that is down to the businesses we have here in Spain and Italy. That’s a pretty phenomenal statistic. Longevity, embracing the future, state of the art. We are about to launch this, this is a sneak preview. We are about to launch in the next few months. We’re about to launch a brand new customer platform which is gonna have a whole new way for you to interact with your customers. We’re in testing right now. It’s being launched in demo face and then it will be launched next year and we launched out to all of you. But that’s a sneak peek gone. It’s about to be launched in the next few months that whole new customer platform.

Juice-Plus+ Longevity

Juice Plus+ Authenticity

What else? Authenticity. What does that mean? Authenticity means that we as a company must live up to what we say that we’re going to do. This is a picture taken in our corporate retreat, a club 100 retreat that we had in Venice a few months ago, where the top leaders of the company all came together to celebrate success. But what did we do during that period? We didn’t just celebrate success. Something else that we did is, we spent an afternoon together packing 20,000 meals which we sent to Zimbabwe. That tells you about us, who we as a company are and who we are trying to be. These are some of the kids that receive the parcels that we send to them in Zimbabwe last month. And it brings me on to children.

Children are the future. And part of our authenticity is to focus on our future, focus on children. And I can hear and see many of them here today. We have something called the children’s health study. The children’s health study is a program that no other organization of our type has. The CHS is a program where we have over a million people involved in a survey, which is the most comprehensive survey about children’s health in the world. it’s something that we do. And we are promoting that, in the next six months, we will be pushing harder to introduce to you and explain to you the benefits of CHS to your business. We’ve done the statistics. If you work with CHS, you can earn as much as four times as much as you do with single product sales. So we want to bring this to you in more detail it’s about who we are, our authenticity.

Juice Plus+ Quality

Quality. We are sure that when we release our products when we launch a new product, we have gone to extreme detail to ensure that every aspect of that product is leading-edge.

It means we can’t launch products in a few months like other companies. We take a lot of time to ensure that what we do is the cutting edge in the industry. Now sometimes it means that we have a little disagreement with the authorities like in Italy, where they didn’t want us to use raspberry seed oil. so we’ve delayed the launch of a meager until the spring. But we are doing this, we have to do this! We want to be leading-edge for this business! So our products are the best quality products that you can find. A little bit later today you’re going to have Manfred Lambrecht who’s going to be speaking to you today, he’s a director of clinical research and he’s going to tell you more information about, not just the products, but the fact that we have over 35 clinical research documents, which can be utilized and should be utilized more in the promotion of the products. It is something that we have that other companies just don’t have.

Juice Plus+ Community

The community is all about you. Healthy living takes a lot more than a healthy body. It takes the community of like-minded friends with a common purpose and Juice Plus we believe in this extended community, not just the company, not just our partners, but outside. We believe in massive relationships between the company and yourselves, the franchise partners. We believe in relationships between yourself and your customer and the company and the customer. We are developing the systems and processes that we need to have in place to enable and ensure a better quality of the relationship between these parties.

Now events like this one are also the foundation of community. So the fact that we have over 3,000 people here today shows how important community is to our business. We had 4,500 people in Freiburg last month, that’s how important community is for our business. We’ve sold out all the tickets for our next event in Salzburg and our next event in Birmingham. The community is important! And we’re going to bring more of this to you. Our vice president of sales for Europe, Mr. Simon Bowler will be rolling out more corporate sponsors events during next year and that’s going to be something to, once again, strengthen the community of these three relationships within our business.


Juice-Plus+ Community

Something else that’s coming up for next year: We’re gonna have new influences joining our business: Digital influences, non-digital influences. We are going to ramp up a, let’s call it positive press or positive PR for our business going forward. Ensure there are a lot more people out there in the industry, outside of the industry talking about Juice Plus in a positive way. So next year is going to be our year from influences. And you’ll start to see these people joining our business. In fact, today we have one of the influences on stage later on.

Juice Plus+ Simplicity

Simplicity; one of our core beliefs. It is vital! What we say is, you share the mission that is Juice Plus and let us take care of everything else. We’re a growing business. We will always have little tweaks that we need to do. But we are building a fantastic professional team inside the Juice Plus company, of a level that we’ve never seen before, to ensure that we can deliver to you a lot more than you’ve ever had before: To make it simple. You share the Juice Plus mission and we’ll take care of everything else.

Juice Plus at your service. This is a great photograph. We took this in Poland in June. This is every employee of the Juice Plus company in Europe. We had a corporate event in Poland in June and all the members of the team came together so that we could get to know each other and foster that community that is Juice Plus. These people here are here for you. They want to hear from you if you have some issues. They want to hear from you if you are happy. It’s all about communicating with us. We are at your service and that includes me. I’m at your service! If you need me, I am there for you. That’s my email address. If you need to contact me, please feel free to reach out and we’re there for you.

Juice Plus+ Simplicity

Juice Plus+ Simplicity

That’s really the core that is Juice Plus. We’re based on these core beliefs. But Juice Plus has been growing phenomenally over the last four years. We have achieved an annual growth of around twenty-five percent a year for the last four years. So we are now in the top five in Europe in this business.

But that’s not enough! That’s not enough! We have a plan! We have a strategic plan

to take us to number one. But being, that we’re growing so fast, we have the ability to attract talent as we have never attracted before. And I have the privilege today to introduce to you one of the people who we’ve recently hired his name is Alexander Quello. Alexander is joining us as the director of legal & compliance. He has got some significant global experience in this area. As we all know, especially here in Italy and in Spain, we understand the importance of compliance to our business. Making sure that we protect the longevity of our company. So we want to change the way you see compliance, rather that we could have compliance being a policy of the organization, we’re gonna make compliance be far more communicative with you. If you need some help, they’ll help you. If you need some

training, they’re training you. So we have started this process of transition with the hiring of Mr. Alexander Quello, director of compliance and legal. I’d like to welcome him to the stage. Thank you very much!

How Juice Plus affected the life of Mitra Ray?

How Juice Plus affected the life of Mitra Ray?

Bengalis are known for making lots and lots of vegetable dishes. We’re very proud of our recipes. My mother was a wonderful cook and a typical meal would be rice and five to six different vegetable preparations, and not only did she teach me how to cook, but of course, as a Bengali girl, I needed to learn how to make chai for my dad, because he would wake up on Sunday mornings and it was my job to bring him his cup of tea. One morning, he didn’t look right. My mother came in and we realized something was very wrong. Turned out he was having a heart attack.


How Juice Plus affected the life

A real story of Juice Plus

And as a twelve-year-old I became very curious about this incident and why my father went from one day being perfectly healthy to being in the emergency room. I decided to become educated about the body and ended up at Stanford Medical School where I got a PhD in biochemistry and became a rigorous scientist through my education at Stanford. But I had my own health challenges and what I found interesting is, that even though I was walking the halls with Nobel laureates, my own health challenges were not being managed by the current medical system effort. I used to run a lot and I was about five miles from campus. One day, my neck went into a spasm and that was the beginning of a series of spasms. Doctors told me I would have to just take lots of Ibuprofen, which gave me an ulcer ultimately and I realized that if my neck spasm would start then I would be laid up in bed, sometimes for days. By the time I was doing research at the University of Washington. I was seeing a physical therapist two to three times a week and I was spending hundreds of dollars that I really didn’t have as an academic. Trying to take care of my back, only to hover over a microscope and make it worse again and go back and see my physical therapist. And then somebody introduced me to a product called Juice Plus and I had been starting to juice at that time and so I immediately understood the possibilities behind this product. Because I was never able to take isolated vitamin supplements nor did I want to, didn’t make any sense to me. But this product caught my attention because it was a whole food based supplement.

Taking Juice Plus

When I started taking it, within six weeks or so my physical therapist asked me what I was doing differently because she said: I think you’re starting to heal. And I couldn’t think of anything initially but then it occurred to me that I’d been taking Juice Plus. I sent my technician to the library that very day with a list of 200 research papers on fruits and vegetables. She was asking me: Why are we looking at these papers now? I said: Because I want to learn more about fruit and vegetable nutrition. I was amazed here. I was writing grants for research to study that what I call now the chaos of disease. And I realized: Wait a minute, you can prevent all of this in the first place if people would just eat enough fruits and vegetables? That the body is absolutely positively designed to heal itself. They’ve given the right nutrients. I had eaten mostly a vegetarian diet growing up.


Taking Juice Plus

A simple way of living

And that simple way of living was the answer that we need to return to, and I felt like I had come full circle with Juice Plus and realizing lifestyle factors, simple factors, such as hydration and exercise and eating more fruits and vegetables is really what can keep us all healthy. And what could have prevented my father from having his heart attack? Now that I know what I know today, I feel compelled to share that with the world. Because I lost my father ultimately to his second heart attack just a few months prior to me having my first baby. He would have seen his first grandchild and he loved children. He so loved children, he would have loved to have been there for the birth of his first granddaughter. So, living life to the plus means not just existence, but really taking advantage of our time on this planet and exploring and expanding. So anybody who loves their life is someone who’s living life to the plus.

What Juice Plus can do?

What a change of diet with Juice Plus+ can do for you

The easiest change

In my medical practice, when I try to get my patients to make one simple change, I go right to diet. Because that is the simplest and quickest and easiest change to make. I encourage people when they make changes to their diet, they go slowly and gradually. We’re not talking about eliminating food groups radically, we’re talking about taking the dieting habits that they have now and modifying them a little bit. Examining what it is you are eating and see what it is you should cut back on, for example, the sugar-sweetened beverages and the artificially sweetened beverages are an easy way to start because they are absolutely not healthy.


What a change of diet with Juice Plus+ can do for you

Get rid of unhealthy things

Another simple change that people can make regarding diet nutrition is to look at what’s in the pantry and look at the unhealthy things. Read the labels and make a decision not to buy the least healthy thing that’s there next. And if you want a bonus one simple change, think outside the box, the real food diet you’re on doesn’t come in a box.


Juice Plus product

Keep it sustainable

Diet simply means what you eat that’s going to be a long-term proposition no matter how you dice it. You people can lose five to ten percent of their weight relatively quickly, but you know the statistics are really, really powerful in saying that ninety percent of those people that go on these radical diets, within four to five years they gain back the weight and many of them gain even more weight. So when we talk about diet, there’s a difference between the trendy diets and just making simple changes, to make a diet that is healthy for you and one that is sustainable.


What Juice Plus can do

One gentleman recently shared with me that he went on a juicing regimen for a while and he got great fantastic results. But then he couldn’t sustain it because it was just a lot of chopping, mopping, slopping, all of that. Then, when I told him about Juice Plus, he got on it and he was so relieved because it was so easy to do and he got similar if not better results with Juice Plus. In order to feel well, we all must eat well. Consistently, every single day, and that’s where the Juice Plus capsules come in to help fill in those gaps for when we’re not getting in our seven to thirteen servings of fruits and vegetables every day that we’re supposed to.


What Juice Plus can do

Effects of changes

I love telling people to eat as much variety and color in their diet and that is why I love Juice Plus, to add that color on a daily basis. Because when you add all those plants to your body every single day, all those fruits and vegetables, it’s going to make you crave more fruits and vegetables. So Juice Plus is the most effective thing I have found to help a person make dietary changes for life.

One Simple Change with Physical Activity 

Do it. Feel it. Crave it.

David Phillips, MD (Sports Medicine)

The focus for so many people and exercising is indeed to try to lose weight, which is a good thing, but exercising of itself can be so beneficial in so many different ways. And it cracks me up because I’ll be driving to the gym myself in the parking lot. And the way people trying to get the closest spot to the door in the gym in the parking lot. So, what I encourage people, anywhere you’re going, park further away. It has two benefits: Number one, you’re gonna get more exercise. Number two, your car won’t get dinged. I really love the Juice Plus Complete and the Juice Plus capsules together. I have used the analogy that the Juice Plus Complete, which is a balanced shake mix connect as the gasoline that makes your engine run, it fuels your body. But equally as important are the Juice Plus capsules, because in the capsules you get all those tens of thousands of plant nutrients and I like to think of those plant nutrients as the oil that keeps your engine running. Because you can put all the gasoline that you want into a car and not change its oil and that car’s gonna run for a while, but eventually it starts to break down. Our bodies function in a very similar way, so I think it’s the combination of both of those by putting Juice Plus Complete into your diet and then putting the capsules into your diet is an unbeatable combination.

Michael Ewald, DC (Chiropractic Physician)

You know, relieving muscle and joint pain to improving bone density to improving the way you think, your attitude. And I have to tell you, I get frustrated with those folks that say, I just don’t have time. Everybody has 15 minutes a day where they could go out and take a walk, you just need some comfortable clothes and some shoes to wear.

Jan Roberto, MD (Family Medicine)

I’ve seen people that were depressed and not focused and they start exercising and of a sudden they start to look at life differently.

Valerie Miles, MD (Pediatrics)

One simple change with physical activity might be as simple as walking to the end of the driveway and back, and if that’s more than what you do on a daily basis, that’s incredible! That’s a success! The great thing about the Juice Plus capsules in helping people with physical activity is that the body absorbs the whole food nutrition so much better. Juice Plus Complete is a great addition to the Juice Plus capsules when we’re looking at physical activity, because while the capsules provide the micro nutrition that goes to every cell, the Juice Plus Complete shakes provide the macro nutrition.

Matt Brown, Jr., MD (Internal Medicine)

I mean, people kind of have this misunderstanding: That, well, if I’m tired already, that’s gonna make me more tired. It doesn’t! If you get physically acted and you’re fueling yourself right, you’re gonna have more energy.


Richard E. DuBois, MD (Internal Medicine)

It’s fascinating that exercise and diet are complementary. One depends really on the other. If you have poor nutrition, you’re not going to exercise well, and if you’re not exercising well, your nutrition is not going to do you as much good as if you are exercising, because your whole metabolism changes when there’s exercise, your whole metabolism changes when you’ve got good nutrition. So they’re synergistic, they work together.

Mitra Ray, PhD (Research Biochemist)

Most people don’t put what they’re eating as a priority to sustain that exercise regimen. Actually 80% of the equation is what you’re eating and how much produce you’re taking into your system and 20% of the health equation is your exercise regimen. Most people think it’s the other way around and that’s not really true.

Bill Sears, MD (Pediatrics)

Make that one simple change: I’m going to exercise 20 minutes a day for 30 days. And then you feel it: I feel more energy, my joints don’t hurt as much, I have more mental clarity, and then you crave it. That’s the pattern of this one simple change: Do it. Feel it. Crave it.
