LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- Leading global nutrition company, Herbalife (NYSE: HLF), has been formally recognized by the mayor of Seoul Metropolitan City for its efforts in developing and supporting child welfare initiatives across South Korea.

Through its Herbalife Family Foundation, Herbalife has established four Casa Herbalife programs in South Korea in collaboration with local charitable organizations to improve the nutrition and lives of vulnerable children. Through these programs, the Herbalife Family Foundation provides financial grants, fund raising and volunteer support to assist in projects that promote good nutrition and health for children.

Herbalife Korea also runs programs promoting the physical and mental development of children. The “Healthy Eating” program, in conjunction with ChildFund, a Casa Herbalife program, teaches under-nourished orphans basic concepts that help them understand the importance of proper nutrition. The Herbalife Mentoree Baseball Team, made up of 21 children from a different Casa Herbalife, has been recognized as an exemplary socially responsible initiative supporting underprivileged children in rural areas.

Since 2004, Seoul Metropolitan City has recognized companies demonstrating excellence and dedication in various fields. Herbalife is the only multi-level marketing company to be presented with the highest award for excellence in corporate social responsibility for child welfare in 2013. Herbalife is also the first direct selling company ever to win the award in South Korea.
