 SHAKLEE OPENS OPERATIONS IN MEXICO
 SAN FRANCISCO, May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Shaklee Corp., a leader in


the multi-level marketing industry in the United States, has formally inaugurated activities in Mexico. Encouraged by the lifting of free-trade barriers and the strength of the Mexican market, Shaklee will be offering its direct selling business opportunity throughout Mexico for individuals interested in owning and operating their own businesses. Initial products offered will be those focused on nutrition and personal care.
 The launch took place in Mexico City this month and was attended by over 1,200 potential new Shaklee distributors. Speakers at the opening ceremony included David Chamberlain, president and chief executive officer of Shaklee Corp. and Charles L. Orr, president of Shaklee U.S. Inc. Shaklee Mexico will operate as a wholly owned Shaklee subsidiary.
 Emphasizing the official motto of the company, "Products in Harmony with Nature and Good Health," Orr commented that beyond Shaklee's commitment to becoming the best multi-level opportunity in Mexico, the company is dedicated to a philosophy of environmental responsibility and leading-edge nutrition research. Shaklee's entry into Mexico comes at a time of growing recognition throughout this country of environmental concerns, the health benefits of good nutrition and a high interest in personal care products.
 Shaklee Mexico is under the leadership of prominent Mexican businesswoman, Gabriela Edwards, who serves as managing director. Edwards, who has 18 years of experience in direct sales, will begin operations based in Mexico City. The launch rollout will continue in May and June with meetings in 10 of Mexico's major cities, including Guadalajara, Monterey, Veracruz and Oaxaca to introduce the Shaklee business opportunity to interested people.
 All Shaklee products reflect the company's commitment to quality and service, and are sold to customers by independent business people throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore. Shaklee also owns Bear Creek Corp., a direct mail subsidiary that includes Harry and David, the nation's largest direct mail marketer of fine fruits and gourmet foods, and Jackson & Perkins, America's largest grower of roses.
