Herbalife International do Brasil remained the overall leader of the Brazil meal replacement market, holding 53% value share in 2011, gaining eight percentage points.

In a bid to offer novelties to consumers, the company introduces different flavours.

This movement had a positive impact on meal replacement in 2012.

Meal replacement slimming is set to drive sales due to the growing number of people concerned about their weight. According to IBGE (National Statistic Office), the number of overweight and obese people increased significantly based on Pesquisa de Orçamentos Familiares 2008-2009; it is estimated that overweight adults already reached 50% of the population, children aged five to nine years account for a third and overweight teenagers represent 25%.
