LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–We condemn the war in Ukraine and support the international community to call for peace. Our hearts go out to all those in the region and around the world who are suffering because of this tragic loss of life and this humanitarian crisis.
Herbalife Nutrition has had a presence in Russia since 1995 and as of February had approximately 44,000 active distributors in the country. The Company has no manufacturing activities in Russia – all products sold on the market are imported.
The company will suspend operations at all 62 sales centers in Russia and will not ship products to the country. Herbalife Nutrition will donate all profits from Russia to organizations supporting Ukrainian refugees.
We made this decision in consultation with our distributor leaders.
The safety of our employees is of the utmost importance and we actively support our employees in the region. Together with our employees and independent distributors, we provide nutritional products and financial assistance to organizations supporting affected communities. Additionally, the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation continues its philanthropic efforts in the region by raising funds to support Save The Children’s Ukrainian Refugee Initiative.
