Avon to build new world-class R&D development operations in Brazil and Poland
Avon will be establishing new research and development operations in Brazil and Poland.
The two countries are two of the direct selling beauty company’s largest markets.
Avon said the move will boost its Global Innovation Programme and help it make significant cost savings.
However, the news means that the company will be also closing its R&D operations in Suffern in New York.
Avon is part of Natura & Co Group which will be co-locating its R&D operations at Avon’s new site in Brazil.
Angela Cretu, chief executive of Avon, said: “For 136 years, breakthrough innovation has been at the core of the Avon brand with our proprietary technology and award winning, affordable beauty products. We believe this evolution of our R&D operations will give us access to a wider ecosystem of partners to drive our innovation pipeline.”
