Jerusalem City Meeting Recap
A large crowd of Israeli distributors brought enthusiasm and energy to our Jerusalem City Meeting on August 2, 2009, at the International Convention Center.
The world-class facility on the outskirts of Jerusalem was fitting for a MonaVie event that attracted hundreds of distributors and guests at the start of the meeting. However, throughout the meeting, more and more rows had to be added to accommodate the increasing crowd size.
MonaVie Israel General Manager Blake Schroeder created a buzz of excitement when he outlined a handful of upcoming features that MonaVie is diligently working on for the Israel market. Meanwhile, MonaVie's Executive Team, which included Founder and Vice Chairman Randy Larsen, recognized distributor leaders of MonaVie Israel and reemphasized the impact MonaVie is having in the world.
Certificates Validate Kosher Product
After Blake set the tone for the meeting, Jeff Graham, vice president of product management, did a presentation on MonaVie KosherTM. Made with a unique blend of 19 body-beneficial fruits, including the superfruit acai, MonaVie Kosher provides high-levels of antioxidants. .
On March 17, 2009, MonaVieTM received kosher certification from the Orthodox Union (OU). MonaVie Kosher is currently labeled with the OU symbol to reflect this validation.
Since that time, MonaVie has pursued and obtained an Ishur Kashrut certification from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel for MonaVie Kosher. This certificate from the Chief Rabbinate provides a local Israeli Kosher certification.
Obtaining these two certificates represents a significant step toward localizing the MonaVie opportunity in Israel.
But, MonaVie is not stopping there. Jeff announced that MonaVie will begin working on obtaining a Badatz Kosher certificate.
New Materials and Features Coming to Israel
MonaVie continues to show its commitment to the Israel market by offering a handful of new items and features to help grow your business.
Blake announced that MonaVie will introduce a number of new options this August to the Israel market, including:
- An Isracard payment option
- Two new marketing brochures: MonaVie Kosher and World of Opportunity
- Hebrew version of the Virtual Office
- Mall items available to purchase through the Virtual Office and at the MonaVie Israel Office in Herzliya.
One of the more exciting announcements was when Blake announced that MonaVie has partnered with Orange, an international cell-phone company, to offer special rates on mobile services to distributors enrolled in AutoShip.

Plenty of other top leaders in the Bronze, Silver and Gold ranks also shared the stage to represent MonaVie Israel's growing and maturing field leaders.
Key Business Tips from Randy Schroeder
Randy Schroeder closed the meeting by speaking about the importance of the Israel market to MonaVie and the key principles for building a successful business.
Randy also made a special request for contributions to be made to the MORE Project, and distributors did not hesitate to generously donate to our rescue operation in Brazil.
