Since 1998, Amway has been providing innovative, world-class nutrition, beauty and healthy home products to the citizens of India through its network of hundreds of thousands of Amway Business Owners, who earn income representing the company. Recently, an Enforcement Directorate action has been filed that relies on previous, old complaints and charges. Amway is responding to this filing, and because we are in full compliance with all local and national laws in India; and are a leader in advocating for the Direct Selling Industry’s highest levels of integrity, corporate governance and consumer protections; we will continue to cooperate with authorities there to work toward a fair, legal and timely resolution to this issue.
Amway continues to operate and invest in India. Our multiple offices and shops across the country are open, and our manufacturing, sales, e-commerce and distribution services are in full operation. We are proud of the economic opportunity we provide to our business owners in India; the corporate social responsibility programs in place there – such as Nari Shakti and Nutrilite Little Bits – and the ABO-led communities that are helping Indians live better, healthier lives.
As disappointed as we are that past issues have resurfaced, we are hopeful for, and seeking, an immediate resolution based on the recent inclusion of Direct Selling under India’s new Consumer Protection Act of 2021, which has brought much-required regulatory protection to ethical, upstanding members of the Direct Selling Industry and for which Amway was a steadfast advocate.
