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.

Scheckter Celebrates with Distributors

Tomas Scheckter, driver of the MonaVie EMV Indy car, joined the festivities at the Edmonton Meeting. Dressed in his official MonaVie race gear, Scheckter thanked distributors and MonaVie for the support he has received on the Indy Racing League circuit.

Changing Lives and Preserving the Rainforest

MonaVie is helping to preserve the Amazon Rainforest and providing natives with a renewable source of income. The income Brazil workers are earning from harvesting the acai is leading to improved health, more education, and better living opportunities.

In addition to planting thousands of additional acai palm trees in Brazil, MonaVie has partnered with a branch of the Brazilian government to teach Amazon natives the techniques of sustainable harvesting that will ultimately help preserve the rainforest's delicate ecosystem.

Distributors Cheer on Scheckter and View MonaVie Jet

As part of the celebration, distributors gathered the next day, July 26, to cheer on Scheckter as he raced in the Edmonton Indy.

View the photo gallery.

Before the race, plenty of distributors showed up at the Edmonton Municipal Airport to take pictures of the MonaVie Jet. Distributors also got a chance to speak one-on-one with members of the MonaVie Executive Team.

Scheckter also made a special appearance at the MonaVie Jet, hours before the race, to take pictures with distributors and sign autographs.

After a strong start, Scheckter's day was cut short by a couple of unfortunate incidents. At one point, he spun and made contact with the retaining wall. He finished 18th overall and will look to rebound in upcoming competitions.

MonaVie EMV Athlete Wins Silver Medal at World Games

MonaVie EMV professional wakeboarder Raimi Merritt narrowly missed winning gold at the 2009 World Games in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, as the 16-year-old finished seven-tenths of a point behind the overall winner to take home the silver medal.

"It was an amazing experience," Merritt said. "To be able to fly across the world and wakeboard on an amazing lake with all those spectators was awesome. I'm going to cherish this experience."

Merritt was one of only two female riders selected to represent the United States at the 2009 World Games, which are held every four years and showcases sports not featured at the Olympic Games.

Merritt will compete next at the Pro Wakeboard Tour in Reno, Nevada, August 14–16, 2009, and then at the WWA World Championships in Orlando, Florida, August 27–30, 2009.

Scheckter Starts Strong, but Retires Early at Meijer Indy 300

Unable to practice the day before the Meijer Indy 300 due to rain, Tomas Scheckter didn't quite get the performance he needed from the MonaVie EMV car on race day. Scheckter started out in the 23rd position and gained positions early on, but had to come in on lap 37 to repair his rear roll bar. The handling of the car deteriorated further, so rather than risk damaging the car, the team decided to park it early. Scheckter retired after completing 59 laps of the 200-lap race.

"Unfortunately, we were unable to get out on track [the day before the race] because of the wet circuit," Scheckter said. "But it's the weather, and there is nothing you can do about it. It's great that the fans stuck it out for the autograph session."
