Member Update – Avon Australia & New Zealand
It is with great sadness that Avon Products Ltd (Avon) announced on 15 February 2018, its decision to close its operations in Australia and New Zealand by year end. Avon is a founding member of the Association and has been a valued contributor to the industry for the past 50 years. Direct Selling Australia sends our best wishes and support to Avon.
We have received queries in relation to the overall health of the direct selling industry. We have the benefit of a recently concluded third-party survey, which has identified revenue growth across the Membership and growth, within the number of Australians engaged with direct selling organizations.
Australia continues to attract direct selling companies from overseas (particularly USA) as well as home-grown enterprises. Increasingly, direct selling companies are embracing a multi-channel approach that prioritizes the customer’s experience through offering choice and convenience and the companies that have done this, continue to perform well in a challenging retail space.
