The company aims to cross the Rs.5,000 crore mark by fiscal year 2021, its eastern region vice president Diptarag Bhattacharjee said here Monday.
Amway India has invested more than Rs.151 crore in the country and has 152 offices and 69 city warehouses across India. Almost 97 percent of the 142 products sold by Amway are manufactured within the country through seven third-party contract manufacturers, he said.

"Odisha is not only the fastest growing state for Amway East but is also the leader among the top 10 growing states for Amway in India in terms of revenue. The state has been steadily witnessing double digit growth for the past four years even during the period when overall recession has hit fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector in India as well," he told reporters.
