LEHI, Utah, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- XANGO, LLC, has been awarded the 2012 ETHOS Award in the Wellness Sub-Category with its FAVAO™ by XANGO total lifestyle reset program, and named a Product Innovation category finalist by the Direct Selling Association (DSA). The award will be formally presented to XANGO today at DSA's 2012 Annual Meeting at the Gaylord Texan Hotel in Grapevine, Texas. The category winner will be announced during the awards gala this evening.
Unlike ineffective "magic" pills and fad diets on the market, FAVAO takes a different approach to weight management by focusing on three core principles: carefully formulated supplements, a healthy, delicious meal plan, and simple, straightforward workouts designed to help consumers meet their goals. The result: not just a physical transformation, but also a healthier, happier outlook on life. Offering a digital wellness library, access to licensed trainers and a social network of like-minded consumers, FAVAO helps consumers gain emotional and physical strength to positively impact their families, friends and communities.
"XANGO is a company built on providing wellness – whether it be physical, emotional or financial strength that people gain through our business," said XANGO Chairman and CEO Aaron Garrity. "We're honored to receive the 2012 ETHOS Award as a recognition of the investment we've made in FAVAO as a new kind of weight-management product. By focusing on the pillars of nutrition and supplementation, physical exercise and healthy eating, FAVAO is helping tens of thousands achieve a total lifestyle reset and enjoy the happiness they're looking for."
ETHOS Awards are given annually to DSA member companies with programs that empower independent direct sellers and fuel business processes.
ETHOS Award entries are judged by a panel of industry leaders and outside experts. Criteria for the judging of the award are specific to each category with an overall focus on excellence, creativity and innovation in the direct-selling industry.
"Receiving a DSA ETHOS Award is a testament to the commitment a company has made to being a model for the highest standards in business practices and ethics," said DSA President Joseph Mariano. "I congratulate this year's winners on their achievement."
