Avon Celebrates 15 Years in CroatiaMay 9th, 2012
Avon, world's leading direct sales cosmetics company, marks 15 years of business activity in Croatia. Established in the Croatian market in 1997, Avon Kozmetika Company today has 37 employees, was awarded the Employer Partner certificate several times over the years, and had been included in the Superbrands publication in 2008.
It is a company rich in heritage and tradition, founded on firm values and principles tracing back to the establishment of Avon in USA more than 125 years ago. Avon Croatia celebrates its 15th birthday as part of one of the most successful European regions, the Danube region.
As one of the secrets to success, Avon emphasizes the importance of understanding the buyers' needs as well as seizing every opportunity to improve the mutual relationship. Therefore in the situation of struggling economy Avon Croatia has decided to offer its products at more affordable prices, so the most popular items, marked by the „low price“ visual, are recently available at up to 20 percent lower prices.
Avon Kozmetika Company is also involved in fighting the breast cancer and violence against women with an aim of improving and saving women’s lives. Avon began its humanitarian work in 2006 by including pink ribbon products in their brochures, and in 2008 the company introduced special products with eternity symbol to support fighting the violence against women. The company has organized numerous humanitarian actions, such as three editions of My First Mammography that ensured free mobile mammography examination for more than 1,800 women in Croatia. Furthermore, AVON Walk for Life was organized in order to raise awareness about the importance of regular examination, and gathering funds for the Autonomous Women’s House Zagreb, which resulted in a donation of 100,000 kuna. Support was also given to other local nongovernmental organizations, like the donation of 50,000 kuna to the Brod Association and their shelter for women in 2011.
