Distributors from 8 Countries Attend Asia Launch Event

Youngevity Launches Te`Vita Olive Leaf Tea

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2017) - Youngevity International, Inc. (OTCQX: YGYID) revealed that it held its first ever Asia Convention. The event made possible via Youngevity's recent acquisition of BellaVita was attended by corporate staff both from the USA and Asia along with hundreds of Youngevity Distributors from 8 countries including Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, Hong Kong and China.

The convention was held in Taichung, Taiwan where Bellavita and Youngevity distributors came together for the first time to discuss the integration and expansion strategies of the combined companies.

Mike Brosnan, the founder of Bellavita and now the VP of Asia for Youngevity had this to say, "I have never been prouder to attend an event than what I experienced during our Asia Convention. Our distributors enthusiastically welcomed their integration into the Youngevity Family of Brands.

"Youngevity's long history as one of the leaders in nutritional products along with the company's opportunity for growth resonated well with our leadership groups across Asia. It is already apparent that this partnership has made BellaVita and Youngevity infinitely stronger and better positioned to execute our Asia expansion."

Youngevity launched an exciting new product branded Te`Vita. Te`Vita is 100% organic, handpicked, whole olive-leaf tea from Abruzzo, Italy. Abruzzo is considered the "green heart" of Italy. Protected and nourished by the Apennine Mountains to the West and the Adriatic coastline to the East, Abruzzo has been known to be one of the most pure and pristine agricultural regions in all the Mediterranean. The product was very well received by all in attendance with shipments of the product beginning immediately.

Youngevity CEO Steve Wallach Said, "Now that we have fully staffed offices across Asia and inventory moving into all our markets we anticipate strong and sustainable growth in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore."
