Melaleuca Hits Record $1.13 Billion

Melaleuca crossed $500 million in annual sales revenues in 2003, a first-time achievement in the company’s 18-year history.  At year’s end, Melaleuca’s revenues had increased $87,141,454 over the previous year. Total sales for 2003 increased by 18% over the previous year of $459 million, reaching $546,921,042 in 2003.

In 2003, company highlights included releasing a patent-pending heart-health supplement named Phytomega, expanding into New Zealand and the United Kingdom and winning the 2003 Environmental Excellence Award by the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry for the company’s environmental sensitivity.

Approximately one-fourth of Melaleuca’s sales now come from overseas operations, but the majority of the company’s growth was from the U.S. and Canadian operations.

“The key to our success is the science behind our products,” VanderSloot said.  “We tell people Melaleuca has products, unique to our company, which can change people’s lives, and help them live longer, more vibrant and healthier lives.  Man’s life expectancy continues to go up each year.  It is quite probable we will all get old.  The question is whether we will be healthy enough to enjoy it.  Proper nutrition will make all the difference.  That’s why people choose Melaleuca.”
