Youngevity Introduces Saveur Natural Food to North America and UK Markets

Previously Only Available in Australia and New Zealand, Youngevity Launches Unique Line of Spices Inspired by Cuisines from Around the World

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2017) - Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI), a leading omni-direct lifestyle company, today announced the launch of Saveur Natural Food, now available for the first time for purchase in the U.S., Canada and UK.

A new category in Youngevity's food and beverage offerings, Saveur's pre-mixed spices were first made available in June of 2017, but only to customers in Australia and New Zealand. Subsequent to this initial launch, sample kits were sold at Youngevity's recent annual convention in Dallas this August in anticipation of commencing distribution in North America and the UK.

Saveur's spices are meticulously sourced by the Company's international product development team. Each of the different rubs, seasonings, spices, salts, and mixes are ETO- and PPO-free, lab-tested, gluten free and steam-sterilized to ensure the highest quality. This uniquely natural approach is expected to help bolster Youngevity's goal of delivering exceptional nutrition and healthy lifestyle solutions to everyday people.

Initially Youngevity will offer over 40 rubs, seasonings, and mixes and will feature suggested recipes in catalog, text and in many cases video formats, showcasing Youngevity distributors and associates preparing meals inspired by many international cuisines enhanced by Saveur's flavorful products. Visit Youngevityusa.com or Click Saveur Spices for more information.

"We believe Saveur Natural Foods aligns perfectly with our overall brand identity," stated Dave Briskie, President and CFO of Youngevity. "This ideal combination of all-natural ingredients and delicious taste should strike the perfect lifestyle balance for our distributors and customers around the world."
