HerbaLife Labels

Supply chain security and streamlined workflow for a natural fit

As a premier manufacturer of nutrition and weight management products, Herbalife takes product integrity very seriously. Their commitment to quality includes tracking each and every bottle from the filling line, through their global network of 2.5 million independent distributors across 74 countries.

While many companies struggle with the complexities of tracking individual pieces—not just SKUs—through the supply chain, MPS helped Herbalife streamline the process and make their brand promise a reality.

Insight: 

Developing an e-pedigree solution, combining conventional and variable printing that encodes in-line, all while maintaining run efficiencies and brand consistency required seamless coordination throughout the production process. Our turnkey solution flawlessly integrated code generation, digital print engines, high-speed code readers, and in-line visual inspection systems to ensure quality and traceability.
