Amway was among the first companies to support the cause by offering Amfee Roasted Coffee, a top seller for Amway Thailand last year.
Amway Indonesia partnered with a government agency to help small business owners sell local products through the UKMWAY program. Today Gayo Java Blend coffee beans are brewed in homes all over Indonesia.
Each time our customers enjoy Amfee Roasted or Gayo Java Blend coffee, they help support local farmers – one steaming cup at a time.
Our distributors and employees throughout the world take great pleasure in the experience of giving, especially when it benefits children.
That’s why Amway Thailand has written a new chapter in its longstanding support of children’s literacy.
Thanks to the launch of The Flying Book, generous donors can use handheld devices to track the books they give as they ”fly” to remote destinations across Thailand – into the hands of underprivileged children.
The app for Flying Book (or Nok Nung-sue) also encourages people to vote for their favorite books. Based on these votes, the Top 100 books will be sent to libraries across the nation.
From Bangkok to Hanoi, we have several reasons to celebrate this month.
Recently, we posted about Amway Thailand’s 25th anniversary celebration. Today, we’d like to share news about a special event that’s particularly signficant for our distributors and customers in Vietnam.
Amway just opened a new office and training center in the Cau Giay district of Hanoi. Distributors in northern Vietnam now have a common place to learn about our company, bring their prospective customers to the Amway shop that opened last year, and share news about our brands, products and business opportunity.
Amway President Doug DeVos proudly joined Amway Vietnam’s executives, distributors and employees in the ribbon-cutting ceremony. As the newest Amway market, Amway Vietnam has achieved great milestones in just four years. We are proud of their strong sales, growing distributor network and attractive facilities that showcase the power of our brand.
Amway President Doug DeVos was on the road this weekend, visiting Thailand for our affiliate’s 25th anniversary celebration.
During Amway Thailand’s National Convention in Muang Thong Thani near Bangkok, more than 40,000 distributors gathered to celebrate their success in their Amway businesses as well as the affiliate’s milestone.
Doug was there to not only commemorate the achievements of the employees and distributors at Amway Thailand, but also to pay tribute to Preecha Prakobkit, who is retiring as Amway Thailand’s managing director this year.
Preecha led Amway Thailand to become one of Amway’s top markets during his 23 years with the company. Always innovating, he explored new ways to connect with distributors and customers, in recent years using social media personally and professionally.
A major milestone, an incredible career and the success of many - definitely reasons to celebrate!
Every October, CLEO Magazine Thailand inducts a number of products to its Beauty Hall of Fame. Judges include beauty bloggers such as this one, well known makeup artists, and writers and editors from CLEO. All use the products for at least a month, but usually longer, in order to accurately report on the results.
This year, Artistry took home not one, but seven, Hall of Fame awards. Some of the categories honoring Artistry and the Artistry Essentials line included “Best Makeup for Newbies,” “Best Acne Healers,” and “Best D.I.Y. Product.”
CLEO is about confidence, naturalness, energy and fun for young Thai women. So we think it’s only fitting that Artistry now holds a place in the magazine’s history.
Three Thai Amway distributors Naruss Mahakkapong (known as ”Bob Joe”), Samornsri Klungsupavipat (nicknamed “Nuch”), and Kitja Watcharapichat journeyed from the “Land of Smiles” to Amway World Headquarters to meet and exchange ideas with our staff.
Bob Joe and his wife, Nuch, are a young and energetic couple who have found novel ways to share the Amway business with people of all ages. They use social media, technology, hip hop music, and multimedia tools to talk about the business and strategies for success.
As much as Bob Joe and Nuch are focused on the here and now, they have a deep respect for the past. They devoured books about Jay Van Andel and Rich DeVos’ lifelong friendship and business partnership. They’ve been inspired by the Amway cofounders’ achievements. And they made the trip to see where this business started in Ada, Mich.
But they didn’t dwell on the past too long. For them, Amway is the business of the future and they’re eager to share it with others – using music, Facebook or whatever means possible.
Amway Thailand has supported environmental awareness and protection programs since the 1990s, including efforts to preserve Thailand’s wild elephant population and educate Thai youth about the the need to protect the planet.
But this time of year, Amway Thailand talks trash – keeping Amway’s plastic packaging out of the trash, that is.
The company has kept 3.77 million plastic bottles out of landfills since 2006 through its annual ”I’m not Rubbish” campaign, which launches November 4.
This month-long effort encourages distributors and customers to recycle and earn points for each bottle they return to Amway. Points can be redeemed for Amway products during the campaign.
Last year more than 1.5 million bottles were returned – nearly double the number recycled in 2008.
