Sally Chiappone – Whole Food Nutrition expert for Orange County, CA

Sally: Firstly, thank you very much for allowing me to speak. Secondly, I had a great time in Orlando. Did a little bit of vacationing and went to our conference. The other thing is that some of you may have received, in fact, maybe all of you have received my newsletter on health and nutrition. Please let me know if you don’t want it that’s okay, just delete it. It’s got some great information in there not just about Juice Plus, but it’s got some great recipes, some little tidbits, things like that. So, just let me know how you like it. I’d like some feedback on that.

The other thing is that there were between 6 and 7,000 people at the right place at the right time to hear the right and amazing new information. I was one of those people. One of the great things that we did find out is that the name of our company is changing. It’s no longer going to be called NSA. It’s going to be called the Juice Plus Company. So, you know what it is now. You don’t have to worry. It’s always going to be the Juice Plus Company, so for us that’s great because it’s a branding thing. I just wanted to let you know that.

As usual, you can see the passion that I have, but that’s the same passion that these 6 to 7,000 people had at the same time for those four days. We inspire to have healthy living for people and that’s our basis. So, what we want to do is to let you know some of the things that are going on. First of all, the president of our company has written a book. It’s called, I Might Have Told You This Story Before.

Every penny from this book is donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Memphis which is now changed its name to the Juice Plus Technical Training Center in Memphis, Tennessee. He is also matching every penny. That’s where he’s coming from. That’s his heart and that’s where he’s telling us to come from, our heart. We want to improve the lives of people and we start at the children. If we can help them improve their lives then they will help improve their children’s lives, so that’s what we want to do.

There are some key figures that are issues that are facing the nutrition industry. Caffeine, FDA red flags, GMO’s, Claims and CGMP’s. I know you don’t know what those are because I didn’t either, but they affect how the government looks at nutrition. So, what it boils down to is that in the next year or two the government is going to be saying to every nutritional product out there, if you don’t have three independent studies outside independent studies on your product, you cannot put it on the market. Juice Plus has 31. We are far above everybody else’s. We don’t ever have to worry about that.

What’s the next big growth area in that industry? Whole food supplements, Juice Plus. Nutritious shakes, Juice Plus. Nutritious snacks, Juice Plus bars which will be coming out next year. So, I just wanted to let you know a little bit about that.

We are inspiring healthy living around the world. What are the next things that are threatening our industry? Urban gardening because urban gardening people don’t have to take supplements because they eat healthy. Well, Juice Plus, we did the right thing. We now have the tower garden. So, you grow your own whole food. It’s nutritious. There’s no pesticides and you take your Juice Plus. So between the two of them we have a win, win situation. We’re just doing some of those things that are great for people.

Whole food nutrition, Juice Plus, its vine ripened when it’s picked not what you find in the stores. So, we pick it, we just it. Within 15 miles of where we juice it, it goes into the cold storage there. We have all of that going for us and then it’s tested from the time it’s picked to the time it’s encapsulated. All of it is tested for herbicides, pesticides, mold, metal, you name it, it’s tested for it.

We have never in 20 years ever had a recall. Never had an issue with somebody getting sick over it because it’s whole food. You take something out from the store; you never know where it’s been manufactured. You don’t know how its been manufactured and you really don’t know what all the ingredients are. You know what our ingredients are because we state it right there and we have the research to back what we say.

So, it’s whole food nutrition. Anybody can take it. If you’re pregnant you can take it. You benefit, the baby benefits. If you’re a child, you can take it. Some of those things, Flintstone’s for instance says, keep out of the reach of children. That doesn’t make sense. It says Flintstone’s is for children, but keep out of the reach of children. Not for our soft chewables. Anybody can take then.

Business Growth Innovators Member: One is perfect. Two is nice.

Sally: Yeah. It’s not good for them. You’re right. It isn’t good for them. We have contracts with all of our farmers and if they don’t produce to our specifications, we don’t use their product and we don’t use them ever again. We contract with farmers who know what they’re doing. They don’t use pesticides in their farms. They don’t use things like that. We actually have people that go through the farms and we hire them and they take care of weeding out the weeds. They take care of taking care of the bugs, whatever’s there. That’s their job, so you know, that’s what we do.

They know how to treat their soil so they get the most densely, nutritious product that’s there. If you want to test us against somebody else, take the product, their original product and test for the smell, test for the look and test for the taste. You will see by far that our products are brighter, they’re more densely nutritious and their taste is better.

So, when we do all these things we only have one person in mind. You as the consumer because we want to make sure that you stay healthy. We want to make sure that you have all the right things that you need to make a good living for your family so there is a business behind Juice Plus. I’ve never spoken about it before, but I will today. If you want good nutrition in your life or if you want good health in your finances, come and talk to me about it because I can help you with that.

The crops that we use, in New York and Michigan this past year suffered a 70 to 90 percent loss in their apple crop. So, we get our apples from three places. New York, Michigan and the Northwest. Well, the Northwest had a bumper crop, the biggest, the largest crop of apples that they’ve had in their history. So, when we have a bumper crop in one area and maybe something that has a loss in another area we don’t suffer as a Juice Plus company because we have places where we can get our food. So, we know that it’s nutritious.

Okay. All of our powders are tested for contamination. They’re tested for identity, for environmental control. Our products are combined and blended and then they’re encapsulated. They go from the warehouse to the consumer. They don’t come to me. I don’t sit them in my garage for a month or two. The quality is there because it’s controlled, so it goes from the warehouse to you as the consumer. So, do you have any questions? No questions? All right, one. Go ahead.

Business Growth Innovators Member:  At some point I knew you guys were working on getting an organic label.

Sally: Right and the reason we don’t do the organic label is because when you have an organic farm A, organic farm B, but then you have a regular farm right in between them that is being shot with pesticides and you get a rain and all that runoff is going to the organic garden. So, of course you can’t say it’s organic yet, but it’s tested. It’s actually safer than organic.

Business Growth Innovators Member: It’s beyond organic.

Sally: It’s beyond organic. Any other questions? Yes. We do own our own health farms and we do own a couple of our other farms and we’re working towards getting that, but we do have definite control of what we grow. So, we never have to worry about that and it’s tested from the time, it’s juiced to the time it’s encapsulated. It’s actually better than organic.

In closing, we do want to help and inspire healthy living around the world. That’s what Juice Plus is about. It’s the company with a heart.
