Meet team Nutrimetics

Written by Lisa

You might have guessed the team at Nutri HQ are just slightly Apricot obsessed. We are a small group of beauty lovers who are passionate about helping others, just like our Consultants.

Our mission is to help everyone to look, feel and be their very best, everyday – and we love that we get to collaborate together with our Consultants to make the Apricot magic happen. It’s amazing to think Nutrimetics has been empowering people for over half a century – and what a wonderful journey it has been, and continues to be for all of us. Take a minute to get to know the team behind Nutrimetics.

Catherine Rhode, Regional Sales Manager New Zealand

How long have you worked at Nutrimetics?

It will be seven years next month when I came back – but in total, I have worked at Nutrimetics for 30 years in a full time and part time capacity. I started when I was 18 in customer service. I have worked in every department (with the exception of finance and IT).

Why do you love working here so much?

I love the people and the fabulous products we have in our range. One of the many fun things is working with a great team of women, who many have become very good friends along the way.

How does New Zealand Nutrimetics differ from Australia?

I love that so many of our products are New Zealand made and we are so very proud of that. We love our Australian colleagues but we also love the competitiveness between Australia and NZ. We are always so proud of what we achieve as a country.

Do you have a favourite story of how a Customer or Consultant’s life has been transformed?

I have the privilege of meeting so many amazing women in this business, I love it when women have the realisation that they can achieve everything and anything they want in life. Nutrimetics provides them with the vehicle, confidence and ability to achieve this. Also, I see so many wonderful friendships formed within teams and between colleagues. I believe these friendships provide the glue to the Nutrimetics business. It gives a place of belonging in the community for many women to be part of.

What’s your favourite all time product and why?

Hands down it would have to be Ultra Care+ Smart Shield Protection Crème SPF 50. I like to walk to keep fit and this protects my skin beautifully. I have never been sunburnt when using this product. I like to also use it on the backs of my hands when driving. This product is so light in texture and doesn’t feel heavy when applied. I like how it quickly absorbs into the skin.

What do you think it is about Nutrimetics that makes it so special?

That it has always been naturally enriched, no testing on animals and no animal ingredients used in the products. We started with these values over 50 years ago. I like to think we started the trend and everyone followed us! Now everyone wants these values.                                                                                       

Anything else you want to mention about why you love Nutrimetics?

It’s home grown in Australia and New Zealand – how good is that? Nutrimetics still seems to be the best kept secret out in the market place though, so let’s look at changing that in 2021!

Deb staff

Deborah Hauer, Product Development Manager at Nutrimetics Manufacturing New Zealand

How long have you worked at Nutrimetics?

Almost 25 years ago, I started at Cosmetic Manufacturers and we made many Nutrimetics products as well as some others. Shortly after starting we were bought by Nutrimetics and I have been part of the “Nutri” family ever since. I’ve worked in the Quality Department and then moved to New Product Development.

Why do you love working here so much and what’s the best part of your job?

I take the formulations developed by the Lab in Sydney and work on all the aspects to turn them into a manufactured item so it is always exciting to see what’s next. The thing I love about Nutrimetics is the strong focus on ethics and quality; if something isn’t right we don’t do it and if in the rare times a batch is not correct there is never any argument about rejecting it.

Do you have a favourite memory from your time at Nutrimetics New Zealand?

Several years ago, we did a huge Botanicals Shower Gel promotion and I remember the factory celebration when the millionth tube in the run rolled out of the filling machine.

What’s your favourite Nutrimetics product and why?

Over the years, my favourite has changed as my skin type has changed. Currently my favourite is Restore Night Crème but that may change when a new Serum goes into production later this year (I can’t tell you what that is!)

What do you think it is about Nutrimetics that makes it so special?

We have some great products like Nutri-Rich Oil and Nutri-Moist that have been with us a long time and these are still relevant in 2021. Nutrimetics also utilises the latest ingredients in new products so we are a great mixture of tradition and innovation.

Anything else you want to mention about why you love Nutrimetics?

Over the years, we’ve had some great people at Nutrimetics and it really is a team atmosphere.

 

Brett staff

Brett Worboys, Pick Line Supervisor at Nutrimetics Manufacturing New Zealand

How long have you worked at Nutrimetics?

16 years

Why do you love working here so much?

I love the friendly family team environment during and outside of work hours. The best part of my job is seeing our product picked, packed and leaving our warehouse to the businesses and homes of our Consultants and their customers.

Do you have a favourite memory from your time at Nutrimetics New Zealand?

There’s been too many good memories to recall but a few that come to mind, I won’t forget making music videos, to Segway racing and meeting the Australian Nutrimetics team in Sydney and Melbourne.

What’s your favourite Nutrimetics product and why?

My favourite would have to be the Nutrimetics Man Hair & Body Wash. I like the fresh fragrance and it’s also great for washing my beard.

What do you think it is about Nutrimetics that makes it so special?

It’s the people here who make our brand special, from not only the Nutrimetics staff in New Zealand and Australia but also our Consultants out in the field. It shows in the passion and care we take in providing great products, that we produce and source locally and from overseas.

Anything else you want to mention about why you love Nutrimetics?

I love that Nutrimetics makes it possible for others to start and grow their own business as a Nutrimetics Consultant, who can then make it possible for others to do the same.

Do you have a favourite customer story?

I love the way this business has transformed so many lives and given so many people the flexibility to work their own hours, especially young mums. I’m a new mum, so it feels great to work for a business that does so much to help and support families.

Ultra Care+ Moisturising System. I love that it’s so lightweight and gives my skin instant hydration that lasts throughout the day.

What do you think it is about Nutrimetics that makes it so special?

Over 50 years of expertise, providing the best in skincare and beauty and all while transforming lives.

Steph, product manager

Steph Hallab, Product Development Manager 

How long have you worked at Nutrimetics?
6.5 years.

Why do you love working here so much?

I really do have the fun job, getting to create and develop the beautiful products that we launch each month in the product development team. I have always loved beauty and seeing the products from an initial concept, all through development stages, to the finished item. When they’re finally in people’s hands being used and
loved, that’s so rewarding.

Do you have a favourite Customer story?
Seeing Consultants elevate through their love of our products and the opportunity Nutrimetics provides is amazing, and gives purpose to what we do in HQ. I recently received an email from a Consultant doing
one of our product trials, saying how the product had transformed her skin like nothing else and she was so happy that we chose her to be in the trial. It was so lovely to hear.

What’s your favourite all time product and why?

It has to be Ultra Care+ Moisturising System. It’s one of the best Hyaluronic Acid serums on the market. It’s incredibly lightweight, absorbs quickly and keeps my skin hydrated all day whilst reducing my excess oil. I don’t go a day without using it! A very close second is the IRYNA range, I couldn’t choose a favourite from this range,
it’s simply beautiful for healthy and happy skin.

What do you think it is about Nutrimetics that makes it so special?

Our empowering brand philosophy, the opportunity for anyone to grow and build a business, and our transformative, beautiful quality products that people trust in and the ethos surrounding our formulations.

Angela Ribiera Customer Service

Angela Ribiera, Customer Service Manager

How long have you worked at Nutrimetics?

16 years. Why do you love working here? I love the culture, the people we work with and having the opportunity to see people’s lives change. The best part of my job is I get to help Consultants directly. I love interacting with and getting to know customers while helping them get the most out of what Nutrimetics has to offer.

What’s your favourite all time product and why?

My favourite product is and always will be Nutri-Rich Oil. I use it every night and have done so since I started working at Nutrimetics. It keeps my skin soft and silky and works wonders on my dry skin. I love using it as a night treatment on my face. My whole family use Nutri-Rich Oil in lots of different ways. It’s a true beauty icon.

What do you think it is about Nutrimetics that makes it so special?

Our products are just the best. The marketing expertise that goes into creating our amazing products is second-to-none. We have our very own manufacturing plant and that means our products have homegrown authenticity. I love that we don’t test on animals. Any brand that can stand the test of time for 52 years is a strong brand. Nutrimetics is a business for the people, it’s not just about the products. We really care about changing lives and seeing people achieve their goals and dreams – and we love celebrating those achievements every step of the journey. When Consultants elevate, it feels really great to be a part of that joy and happiness.

Ash

Ashlee Khan, Regional Sales Manager NSW/ACT

How long have you worked at Nutrimetics?

5 years.

Why do you love working here so much?
There is no other job like Nutrimetics. My role is so rewarding. I get to change people’s lives, whether that’s by showing someone make-up techniques so they have more confidence within themselves, or helping someone build a business so they can stay at home with their kids, or go on their first overseas holiday, or even just making some extra money to help pay the bills, it’s all so rewarding. I’m surrounded by incredible people, both in the field and corporately. It makes it very easy to love what I do.

Do you have a favourite story of how a Consultant’s life has been transformed?
I have so many I don’t know which one to choose! I think the one that most stands out is when I first started and I was at a Leadership meeting and a new Manager was achieving a new car. She talked about how she came from a broken home and had never owned anything brand new in her life and didn’t have her license. She
was a young, single mum and with the help of her ‘Nutri Mum’ (her upline manager), she was able to move into a brand new apartment, take driving lessons and be a stay-at-home mum for her daughter.

What’s your favourite all time product and why?
I could not live without Platinum Tight, Firm & Fill Face Serum. I use this three times a day! It’s the best secret primer and helps my make-up last all day.

What do you think it is about Nutrimetics that makes it so special?
I know our products are incredible but I think it’s so much more than that. It’s about the forever friendships, being surrounded by people who continually lift you up and continue to inspire you to live your best life.

Peter CEO

Peter Archer, Interim Managing Director and Supply Chain Director

How long have you worked at Nutrimetics?

Almost 20 years.

Why do you love working here so much?

It’s the people, both the staff and the sales field, that have kept me with Nutrimetics for so many years.The best part of my role is watching team members grow and develop. Also from a personal perspective, Tupperware Brands (our parent company), have provided me with lots of opportunities.

Do you have a favourite story of how a Customer or Consultant’s life has been transformed?

The life story of Vicki Cross, a Sales Director from New Zealand. The challenges she has overcome really resonated with me. Plus, Adam Buechner’s development to Executive Sales Director has been a great journey to watch. Many of our Senior Leaders have come from very humble beginnings and their journey with Nutrimetics has changed their lives so much for the better.

What’s your favourite all time product and why?

Nutri-Moist has been around for over 50 years and it’s still one of our best sellers. The Platinum range is a close second, the formulas are unparalleled and the results speak for themselves. What do you think it is about Nutrimetics that makes it so special? I think our brand stands for quality, loyalty and consistency. We are so lucky to have so many passionate customers and Consultants who choose to shop with us for a lifetime, not to mention many staff who are in in for the long haul, too. It’s rare and very special.
