Our Founder

Mark Hughes (1956–2000) founded Herbalife Nutrition in 1980, with the goal of changing the nutritional habits of the world, one person at a time. He shared his vision for success in a passionate and powerful way, resulting in what is now a multibillion-dollar company with dedicated Independent Herbalife Members in more than 90 countries around the world. In 1984, Hughes created Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF), with the goal of improving children’s lives by helping organizations provide healthy nutrition to vulnerable children. Today, the program helps to provide proper nutrition to tens of thousands of children in over 50 countries around the globe. HFF also lends support to relief efforts and responds to natural disasters around the world.  

At Herbalife Family Foundation, we strive to grow our impact and continue carrying out Hughes’ vision. Speak with people who met Hughes and they will tell you how he motivated them to reach greater heights personally and professionally. He inspired people from all walks of life through his faith in people’s ability to change lives, starting with their own. Hughes believed that one person can make a difference and that difference is a healthier world.
