30-Year Retail Veteran Used His Experience and Knowledge to Develop a Turnkey, One-Stop Shop for Health and Wellness Companies

Mitch Gould, CEO of NPI, is a third-generation retail distribution and manufacturing professional. Gould developed the "Evolution of Distribution" platform, which provides domestic and international product manufacturers with the sales, marketing, and product distribution expertise required to succeed in the world's largest market -- the United States. Gould, known as a global marketing guru, also has represented icons from the sports and entertainment worlds such as Steven Seagal, Hulk Hogan, Ronnie Coleman, Roberto Clemente Jr., Chuck Liddell, and Wayne Gretzky.

BOCA RATON, FL, Oct. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitch Gould realized health and wellness brands often struggled when they launched new products.

These companies, especially the overseas brands, struggled when they brought their products to the American consumer, said Mitch Gould, founder and CEO of Nutritional Products International, a global brand management firm based in Boca Raton, FL. They could have the greatest health and wellness innovation since aspirin, but they didnt have the skills to reach the consumer market or the retail outlets.

Gould saw these brands spending a lot of money on adding staff, renting office and warehouse space, and paying Madison Avenue prices for marketing.

I realized there had to be a better, more cost-efficient solution, which is why I created the Evolution of Distribution platform, Gould said.

The Evolution of Distribution platform is a turnkey, one-stop solution to launching products or expanding retail sales in the U.S.

Instead of creating an infrastructure from the ground up, NPI already has all the services and expertise these brands need to promote their products to consumers and retailers, Gould said.

NPI, along with its sister company, InHealth Media, offers sales, regulatory compliance, warehouse space, logistical, and marketing services to product manufacturers.

They dont have to hire a sales team. NPI has one, Gould said. They dont have to deal with the FDA. We have a food scientist on staff to make sure their labels are FDA approved.

Gould founded InHealth Media because the brands needed a company that specialized in health and wellness products.

NPI and IHM have everything brands need to launch their products in America, Gould said, adding that NPI becomes the U.S. headquarters for these companies.

NPI also emphasizes e-commerce sales, especially now because of the pandemic.

COVID-19 forced more consumers to change their shopping habits, Gould said. Now, they buy almost anything online, even items they used to only buy in-person.

Goulds expertise with e-commerce sales dates back to the early days of Amazon when the online giant started selling everything.

I was part of a Powerhouse Trifecta, which placed more than 100 brands and even more products onto the virtual shelves of Amazons new health and wellness category, he added.

Kenneth E. Collins, who then worked for Muscle Foods, and I had the contacts in the health and wellness industry to place all these high-quality brands with Amazon, Gould said. We worked with Jeff Fernandez, who then was on the Amazon team tasked with stocking the new health and wellness category.

Ken, Jeff, and I made up the Powerhouse Trifecta, he added.

The successful Powerhouse Trifecta is still intact because Gould hired Jeff, now NPIs president, and Ken, now the companys executive vice president.

Why breakup a team with more than seven decades of experience and success, Gould added.
