Some of the products include Nutrilite Tulsi, Nutrilite Natural C, Pursue Disinfectant, Persona Soap, among others.
It also has seen a pre-empting rise in demand of immunity and hygiene products, and therefore it is gearing up to ramp up production of these SKUs by four times in the coming months and maintain the product availability to 95%.
The company is working round-the-clock with its supply chain partners and distribution teams and also expedited supplies of raw material and components, from both local as well as global sources, to ensure consistent product supply.
It has also enhanced manufacturing capacity at contract partners to ensure adequate supply. With these initiatives, it has been able to maintain high product availability of 98% through the health crisis.
