USA: Whole Living sees 81% increase in Japan sales
AMERICAN FORK, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Whole Living, Inc. (OTCBB:WLIV - news), dba Brain Garden, announced that sales in Japan for the month of December increased 81% compared to November.
``After a lot of hard work, we feel like we are now going to see the rapid growth that we have expected from Japan,'' said Ron Williams, President of Whole Living, Inc. ``We knew that there would be some challenges entering Japan. It is the best direct sales market in the world and there are many things, legally and logistically, that a company needs to do to be successful. With everything that we have accomplished this year in Japan, including establishing a distributor training center, product registration, and a warehouse/fulfillment center in Tokyo, we are excited to now simply support the growth.''
``Establishing a warehouse/fulfillment center in Japan as well as implementing an inventory control system have been very important for us,'' stated Douglas Burdick, COO of Whole Living Inc. ``Huge strides were made in the latter part of 2001 to ensure that the sales force in Japan would have the product and support that they need to grow their sales. At this point, Japan is a small portion of our overall sales but has the best potential for rapid growth.''
Whole Living entered Japan in early 2001.
Whole Living, Inc. (OTCBB:WLIV - news) is a premier whole- foods nutrition company in the direct-selling industry, with premium products reaching consumers throughout the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
