Since 1998, Amway Korea has been partnering with small and medium enterprises (SMEs) through the One for One program. One for One connects domestic SMEs to consumers by allowing them to sell their products through Amway’s extensive global networks.
The Korea Times reports that the company recently launched a sister program dubbed the One for One Kind Shop, which partners with green product designers and manufacturers. Amway will offer select environmentally friendly products and donate all proceeds from the sales to charity. The first of these products is the “Original Green Cup” by Ecojun, a design that has garnered three major awards.
As one component of Amway’s Global Development Project, the company has also provided R&D consulting services to local Korean think tanks. The project furthers Amway’s investment in developing local SMEs and promoting economic opportunity in Korea.
