Conventionally, all companies seek to expand their operations both locally and international. It is an indication that the company is getting its priorities and goals right. Organo Gold has not been left behind either. Early this year (2015), the company opened an outlet in Turkey. With the opening of the new outline, the company had attained a total of 39 countries they operate in, nationally. BusinessForHome said that for businesses to exhibit good performance, there must be a leader with a vision leading a motivated team. Bernardo Chua is the individual behind the good performance by Organo Gold. He is the Co-founder and CEO of the company.

For example, coffee products will be able to stimulate and keep consumers alert while at the same time offering them other health benefits. It may explain the reasons why the company is fast expanding across the globe. Many individuals with active lifestyles prefer taking coffee. Fortunately for them, this seems to be the solution that Organo Gold is offering.

Organo Gold products contain components of Ganoderma, which are herbs that resemble mushroom and are believed to be of Chinese origin. Health experts believe they are among the herbs with numerous health benefits to the consumers. Some of the benefits derived from continued use of the products include prolonged lifespan and a healthy body. It makes the products more competitive in the international market hence a choice of many.

Expansion strategy
Turkey’s culture promotes the consumption of coffee products. It is interesting to note that they opened their first coffee shop in the 15th Century. Therefore, it has provided a ready market for Organo Gold’s products. The company will only be required to maintain good quality products or make them better, so as to continue gaining the market share.

Organo Gold’s Executive Vice President Holton Buggs says they as a company they would continue providing useful services and becoming market leaders in Turkey.

OrganoGold – Global Company, Personal Enrichment

It all began in a small shop with only 3 employees, but today OrganoGold is a global marketing company specializing in gourmet beverages, as well as nutrition and personal care products. Its line of coffees includes chocolaty Cafe Mocha, bold King of Coffee, and Cafe Supreme, blended with ginseng. OrganoGold also offers grape seed oil, an excellent source of antioxidants, and G3 Beauty Soap, enhanced with moisturizers and antioxidants.

The secret of each product’s success is ganoderma lucidum, a nutritional herb grown in China and often called the King of Herbs for its valuable properties. Ganoderma lucidum supports the immune system and circulation, as well as quality of sleep, and has been considered one of the most important herbs by Chinese doctors. It has been used for over 4000 years, and is grown in the pristine natural environment of the Wuyi Mountains of China. OrganoGold’s mission is to “to spread knowledge of ganoderma to the entire world.”

Chua was an executive with Gano Excel in the Phillipines, and helped expand that company to Hong Kong, then Canada and the U.S. So Chua was already a successful businessman when he launched OrganoGold in 2008, in an office with one employee. On June 30, 2014, Chua proudly opened the company’s new international headquarters in Richmond, British Columbia, at a ceremony with over 500 guests. Chua said, “Millions of people will be experiencing the benefits of OrganoGold.”

OrganoGold distributes products by direct selling, giving many people the opportunity to become independent entrepreneurs. Coffee is the second largest traded commodity, and the wellness industry is worth billions. OrganoGold has over 450,000 distributors worldwide, and the company provides training and support to earn both immediate income and residual income. For more information, see

The success of OrganoGold has also enabled the company to sponsor the non-profit OG Care Foundation. The OG Care Foundation provides skills and training to disadvantaged young people worldwide, and also helps them learn leadership skills.

As the folks at OrganoGold say, It’s easy, it’s simple, it’s coffee!

All Three Of My Pets Are In Love With Beneful

Raising dogs is just as hard is raising children. I have to figure out what my dogs like to eat, and they are not all the same. I would’ve thought that each one of my dogs would eat the same thing, but I learned that they like different foods. If I lay out a bowl of food, one dog may pick at it, the other dog may jump into it, and the third dog won’t touch it at all. I couldn’t seem to find food that all three of my dogs would eat, and it was costing me a fortune.

I wasn’t sure what to do, but I couldn’t keep buying several different foods at once to make sure that they all would eat. I even decided to try wet dog foods to see if it would help, but it didn’t make a difference. I could never get all three dogs eat the same food, no matter what I did. At one point I was ready to just give up, and I finally found the solution. I took the last step of talking to my veterinarian, and I asked him for a suggestion of what kind of food I should feed all three dogs.

My vet has four different dogs, and he says that they all eat Beneful brand dog food. I had heard about Beneful before, but I never thought it was any different than any other dog food out there. After my veterinarian gave me the advice, I decided to go and buy some. I went to a grocery store on my way home, and I was able to find different brands of Beneful on the shelf. I wasn’t certain which one they might eat, but I took a gamble because it would be no different than any other time I bought food for the dogs.

I was surprised when I got home and put the food in their bowl, and all three of them ate. There are three different sections in the bowl that I laid it out for them, and all three of them were eating at the same time, and I just couldn’t believe it. I had no idea that I could finally find one food that they all would like, but I’m grateful that I did. Choosing to feed my dogs Beneful brand foods made a big difference when it comes to meal times in my home. My dogs love Beneful , and so do I.

Marc Spark’s Bonn Óir Vodka Settles In On American Shores

The latest exciting name in vodka arrived in America from a European starting point. Bonn Óir (pronounced “bän ôr”) Gold Medal Vodka comes to the United States not from Russia or France. This vodka is a product of Ireland and derived from an Irish family recipe passed down through three generations, according to The Spirits Business.

This handcrafted Irish-American vodka has been touted by Bonn Óir creator and recipe family member Dan O’Shevlin as setting a “new standard” for vodka connoisseurs. Their recipe uses a top-grain of soft white wheat to produce its flavor. Other O’Shevlin vodka offerings include a lower calorie Bonn Óir Light, and a cinnamon-infused version labeled Irish Fire.

Bonn Óir vodka enjoyed critical acclaim in 2015. The brand was among the top 100 spirits recognized in the 2015 International Craft Spirit Competition in Los Angeles.

Backing for the O’Shevlin Importing Company happened thanks to an investment from Dallas-based Timber Creek Capital. Serial entrepreneur Marc Sparks is the founder, owner, and CEO of the private equity firm. Marc’s book “They Can’t Eat You” discusses his rise from a C+ average high school graduate to success, and then to the bottom before rising again to the top.

“Through my years of experiences I understand challenges and devastating circumstances entrepreneurship can bring. My passion is to help entrepreneurs build their dream and companies to critical mass through my experience,” Sparks said on the Timber Creek Capital blog.

Can Junk Food Cause Depression?

A new study from researchers at San Diego State University suggests that eating junk food might not just make you fat–it might also lead to depression.

The researchers studied 5000 people, comparing their trans fatty acid intake to their emotional state. They found that people who consumed more trans fats had problems controlling their emotions, while people who ate fewer fatty foods were more positive and in control. This confirms another study by James E. Gangwisch, PhD, a professor at Columbia University. He and his team studied data from nearly 70,000 women and found that depression occurred more often in women whose diets ranked higher on the glycemic index, which measures how carbohydrates in foods affect blood sugar levels.

Both studies are open to interpretation and debate, since correlation does not necessarily imply causation. Folks on the Beneful squad know one hypothesis could be that people who are depressed tend to eat more sugary foods, rather than eating sugary foods leads to depression. Without further study, it’s impossible to say. The important takeaway is that having a healthy diet and exercising is vital to overall quality of life.

Becoming Vegetarian Involves Widespread Controversy; Here are 10 Common Ideas

For whatever reason, many people try going vegetarian during the summer, possibly because the dishes aren’t as heavy as meat dishes. But if you have been a vegetarian, you will hear certain comments constantly from the rest of the population.

2. There are more vegans and vegetarians now than there have ever been.
3. People choose to be a vegetarian both for health reasons and because of the killing of animals.
4. “Other people” are always asking, “What about the protein?” Seriously, there is more protein in broccoli than in a piece of chicken.
5. “So, all you can eat is fish?” No.
6. Vegetarians eat only side dishes. Not true; Spaghetti Bolognese is a great dish.
7. Many are vegetarian because the meat industry has no concern for the animals.
8. Many people think that becoming a vegetarian would be too boring, but actually, vegetarians use a larger variety of fruits, vegetables and other foods than most meat-eaters.

10. Before you judge, try having a meat-free day once a week. It will be good for your health and the environment.

Dumping of the Milk

Located in Vermont are factories that have been increasing in production despite the demand of milk decreasing. Withing the year, production has even increased by 2 percent which is more than what is demanded at this current rate. The reason behind this is if they throw are their perishable products away, they will be able to stay, financially afloat.

Now the question of ‘Got Milk’ will always be yes and way too much of it. This product is now being dumped by the truck load because of the market saturation. The production has increased to at least get some of the value instead of no value at all.

According to Dr. Jennifer Walden in this article, this is done by converting the milk into non perishable items such as cheese and other dairy products. They are working with others in the industry for the purpose of maintaining as much of the value on dairy products as they can.

Currently, this organization is only dumping skim milk, however this may change. The skim milk is currently being dumped on manure pits on farmlands. There has been an estimation of hundreds of thousands of gallons of skim milk that have already been dumped because the Co-ops cannot lower the production rate of milk.

The industry says that by converting the product into other sold items is better than being left without a market. The milk will be mostly turned into cheese and other products as the production demand decreases.

FDA to cut out Trans Fat from food

The Food and Drug Administration has recently announced that it will demand manufacturers to stop the use of partially hydrogenated oils, which is the main source of artery-clogging trans fats — from refined foods over the next three years.

Extensive research exhibits trans fat that may be found in pies, frozen pizza, and many other processed foods, aren’t specifically recognized as safe for use in foods.

Doctors are also claiming that trans fats could possibly be one of the worst types of fats that people can consume. Similar to saturated fat, trans fat raises the bad cholesterol levels without raising the good cholesterol levels.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association aforementioned in a statement that it is content that the FDA has reacted in a way that prioritizes the FDA’s concerns and lessens unnecessary disturbances to mercantilism.

Even after ruling out trans fats, the country still has a long way to go towards healthier eating. According to Eric Pulier, the FDA will then have the opportunity to address other issues such as excessive amounts of sugar, confined starch, red meat, and sodium usage.

Over 20 years, eliminating trans fats is anticipated to cost businesses up to $14 billion as they switch to other oils, but could possily save up to $242 billion in health costs, reported by the FDA.

The new FDA rule could possibly influence the decisions of other countries.
