2018 Global Media Guide

A Mosaic

There’s something deeply appealing about a mosaic. From ancient Roman murals made from stained glass to the stunning Indian floor patterns made of bright-colored flower petals, the concept of something big and beautiful born from small individual pieces transcends cultures and borders.

The Amway business, too, is a mosaic. It’s a colorful compendium of people of different backgrounds and countries, desires and aspirations and of products and ingredients sourced from around the world. This year’s media guide aims to capture stories, sights and soundbites of the global experience. Throughout the guide, you’ll see images of Amway Business Owners and photos they’ve shared on social media. Paired with stories sourced from around the world, this year’s media guide captures the international mosaic that is… @Amway.

How Amway Uses Technology to Fuel Its Global Network

From the beginning, the promise of Amway has never wavered. Amway helps anyone with the entrepreneurial spirit—and the desire—to build a business of their own.

The outcome is people who are more in control and empowered to make choices for themselves. It means that their business revolves around their life, instead of their life revolving around their business.

That outcome is more important today than ever before. Today’s entrepreneurs want to run their businesses, from wherever they are. They want data and tools that are only a swipe away and they want to sell products that are digitally connected. Amway offers all this.

The company is also complementing its customer service staff with digital interactions (chats, bots, etc.), as well as instant messaging for customer service to respond to ABO and customer needs however the individual prefers.

Amway recently invested $70M USD in mobile apps for Amway Business Owners.

Discovery & Innovation

Our scientists are taking discovery and innovation to the next level.

Our global family of nearly 1,000 scientists, engineers and technicians work with leading universities, science institutes and advisory boards to conduct world-class research and product development.

While efforts behind some segments of product development research are kept secret for competitive purposes, others warrant a different approach: sharing. Whether it’s submitting our research for publication in scientific journals, applying for a new patent or opening the results of a study for public domain, Amway R&D believes in the importance of sharing in an effort to advance scientific research as a whole.

Farming How It's Meant To Be

Amway operates nearly 6,000 acres of certified organic farmland and employs more than 200 scientists in research labs across the globe. We grow, harvest and process the plants on our farms, and we use strict quality standards to ensure that only the highest-quality plants are used to make ingredients for our products.

Rather than relying on harmful chemicals, our farms rely on a variety of natural methods to keep the plants healthy and the ground fertile. One example is five tons of worms that are farmed to provide rich nutrients that enrich the soil. In a healthy worm farm, the worms process the equivalent of their own weight each day. Their waste, or castings, is collected by watering and draining the worm beds multiple times. The result is 260,000 liters of nutrient-rich liquid humus a year, key to fertilizing the farm’s organic crops destined for ingredients in our nutrition and beauty products.

The farm team also makes their own organic fertilizer from a formula of alfalfa, water, milk and special strains of bacteria. This, combined with the worm farm’s liquid humus, is the only fertilizer that’s spread on the fields. That gives us all the benefits of traditional farming methods, but it’s all natural.

Similar methods are used at our farms in Trout Lake, Washington, USA, where the farms are irrigated using nutrient-rich water runoff from the nearby glacier; and at the farm in Ubajara, Brazil, the site of our largest acerola cherry farm.

NUTRILITE™ IS THE ONLY VITAMIN AND DIETARY SUPPLEMENT BRAND TO GROW, HARVEST AND PROCESS PLANTS ON THEIR OWN CERTIFIED ORGANIC FARMS.
