Mission Statement
“The ForeverGreen vision is about inspiring the
human race to embrace every second of every
season of life – always green, always growing,
no matter the conditions, where today’s ceiling
is tomorrow’s ground floor. The world will never
change in one broad stroke, but rather with
millions of small strokes from the hands of
mankind. ForeverGreen is about bettering the
community one person at a time – globally.
Locally, ForeverGreen employees are
encouraged to take an extended lunch once a
month to get lost in doing good in the service of
their local community. ForeverGreen is about
showing up, a way of being”

Competitive Market
Trends
 Market trends are showing more and more people are relying on holistic and healthy products.
 There are greater numbers of medical students studying in the naturopathic medicine field to either
compliment traditional MDs or in place of it.
 Science has always developed medicine based on natural factors and develop ways to create
synthetic medicines that are patentable and far more profitable, however, the consumer is now
realizing the significant benefits the natural state has to offer.
 Science is proving that raw and natural organic foods and products have greater positive impact on
health, beauty, and happiness.
 As the attention span lessens (now at 3 seconds), capturing a market for products and services is
becoming increasingly difficult. By offering these products via direct selling we reach a greater and
more diverse audience throughout the world and across economies.
Competitive Market
Analysis
 With 67.8 percent of North Americans overweight or obese, last year, one percent of these 200 million
people spent $5 billion on gastric bypass surgery alone. This expensive, dangerous and desperate
approach now has more affordable and safe options. ForeverGreen has several healthy meal
replacement and diet options.
 Food is big business ($628 billion annually) and growing at about 2% per annum.
 Healthy foods are the future of that business.
 CAGR is expected to be 6-9% for the next 8 years.
 Amount of foods being bought outside away from standard brick and mortar retailer or specialty
store has increased from 8% of industry to 12% just in the last year.
 ForeverGreen offers a whole lifestyle approach with products complimentary to the healthy food
intake.

FrequenSea
– The Original Marine Phytoplankton Formula.
Experts have referred to FrequenSeaas a "Super food"
containing all of the elements necessary to sustain a
healthy life. Every time you open a chilled FrequenSea
bottle, you reconnect with mother nature's intention: Health
is pleasurable. The aroma of sweet and fresh to fruity and
flowery ending with a ginger kick, matches the delicious
experience of tasting it. This is a natural experience for your
senses FREE of Chemicals, MSG, Gluten, GMO, added
sugars or artificial flavors.
Exclusive! AMP Technology
Due to the oily form of the elements in most supplements,they are poorly absorbed by our body. Since our body is 70% water, water
soluble ingredients are optimal. By "AMPing"
FrequenSea's ingredients, not only the oils, but also the resins, phytochemicals and phytonutrients are instantly assimilated and
bioavailable. With: Marine Phytoplankton Alpha 3 CMP:Aloe Vera:Noni Juice:Astaxanthin:Frankincense:Rose:Ginger: Nutmeg:Orange,
Sweet Limes, Citric Acid:
Exclusive
Marine Phytoplankton
(marketing edge)
EXCLUSIVE
Other makers of phytoplankton such as Ocean’s Alive Marine Phytoplankton, and
Sunfood use standard laboratory methods (bio-reactor) and are of closed cell
phytoplankton, whereas ForeverGreen’s products, in an exclusive partnership, use Unique
Sea Farm’s (USF) Alpha 3 CMP™ Open Cell Phytoplankton, thereby making it easier for the
body to assimilate this key nutrition.
Competitive Market
 ForeverGreen uses Unique Sea Farm’s (USF) patent pending Alpha 3 CMP™ Open cell marine phytoplankton.
 Committed to developing and providing high quality products that are innovative, healthy, efficacious, easy to use and easy to
sell.
 Exclusive University of Utah Study finds that Alpha 3 CMP is scientifically proven to increase CD3 cell (T-Lymphocytes) in the
body and proven that a daily serving of 75mg of Alpha 3 CMP offers enough potency to increase the CD3 cells (1oz of
FrequenSea contains 75mg of plankton – 300,000,000 cells per serving).
 Many competing companies provide capsules, powders, pills or tablets as nutritional supplements, but we believe these
generally fail, and, more significantly, are of a closed cell phytoplankton and may be synthetically produced, and not readily
bio-available.
 We intend to continue our emphasis as a total lifestyle company. We provide the every-meal answer with a variety of
appetizing healthy food products that allow our Members and customers to eat healthy for every meal and snack throughout
the day. In addition, we provide healthy personal care products as an alternative to the chemical-laden and synthetic products
in the marketplace that may potentially negatively impact our health.
 Products are made readily available through independent home-based sellers who have the same philosophy of a healthy
lifestyle. There is a face behind the products as opposed to those who provide their products directly from an enormous
generic website.
