The DSN Global 100 is a collective effort to show the impact and potential of the $180 billion direct selling industry on the world’s economy. With an eligibility requirement of a minimum $100 million in annual sales, the 2021 Global 100 represents the gold standard of achievement and comprises aggregate revenue of more than $64 billion from companies spanning multiple industries based in 17 countries.
The 2021 list, unveiled online at DirectSellingNews.com and to be featured in the June issue of Direct Selling News magazine, recognizes the impact of the direct selling industry in economic and social realms and the performance of the leading global companies. It is a valued and trusted resource for entrepreneurs and other direct selling companies looking to partner with the most successful businesses in the industry.
Gaining growth in all its sectors and business segments, NewAge reached $500 million in proforma net revenue in 2020 versus $254 million in 2019, a growth rate of 98%. NewAge’s Direct to Store segment grew 8.3% organically, its 13th year of consecutive growth, and NewAge’s Direct/Social Selling Segment comprised the bulk of the increase driven by strong organic growth in Europe, the U.S., and Mexico, and the addition of the ARIIX acquisition at the end of the year.

Our business model is right on trend, as is our unwavering commitment to healthy products.

We believe that the social selling landscape offers unlimited growth potential for our family of Brand Partners and our shareholders. Our dedicated team of more than 400,000 Brand Partners and consumers is a tremendous source of competitive advantage and growth as e-commerce and social selling continue to disintermediate traditional retail.”
