We are completely dedicated to expanding our reach and helping more people than ever find relief from their medical conditions

Gevir, a New Zealand based company with the focus of developing capsule and powder supplements derived from deer antler velvet is excited to announce its products will be featured at the International Diet, Sports Nutrition & Vitamins ECRM show in Tampa, Florida from June 26-29, represented by Nutritional Products International (NPI).

ECRM trade shows allow companies the chance to introduce their products to some of the top retail buyers in the nutritional and health product industry. Gevir representatives from the NPI team will therefore have a chance to educate some of the business’s most influential figures about the numerous benefits of the nutritional supplements.

“We can’t wait for NPI to get to Tampa and participate in the monumental show,” said Josh Buckman, CEO of Gevir. “This show is a big opportunity for us to expand on the reach we have already developed and to learn from many other major players in the industry about marketing and product development. We are pleased to have the chance to participate.”

At ECRM events, retail buyers visit suppliers in private meeting spaces to discuss product launches, marketing strategies and various other business initiatives. This makes the events different than standard trade shows, which lack the same sort of privacy and intimacy ECRM offers at its shows.

Gevir was launched in 1990 by Clint and Shelley Thomsen as a solution for a medical condition Shelley had. Shelley was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at 28 years of age and after several years of looking for treatment options, the Thomsens discovered deer velvet had been used as an ancient Chinese tonic for treating many conditions and could help manage Shelley’s MS. Being unable to source a renewable supply of deer velvet, Clint and Shelley started farming deer in New Zealand and harvesting their rich deer velvet, which grows every year and naturally falls off in the springtime. Since using Gevir Deer Velvet Shelley’s MS symptoms never progressed and now at age 67 she still lives a full life in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

Gevir is New Zealand’s oldest producer/marketer of Sustainably Farmed 100 percent New Zealand Deer Velvet. In 2015 Gevir was purchased by Josh and Penny Buckman as they have been interested in the health and wellbeing of the product since Josh had serious shoulder injuries following a career in rugby. Since Josh has been using Gevir Premium symptoms such as numbness, pins and needles and pain have diminished.

The company only uses sustainable Deer Velvet sourced direct from some of New Zealand’s award winning deer farmers and only uses premium whole stick deer velvet and contains no fillers. The Gevir process is entirely free from manmade synthetics and chemicals as well.

“This show is going to be our next big chance to help show the world what these products can do for everybody,” said Mr. Buckman. “We are completely dedicated to expanding our reach and helping more people than ever find relief from their medical conditions.”

The product comes in both capsules and packets of powder. To find out more about Gevir visit
