Betterware was established in 1928 and we think our greatest achievement through the decades is the opportunity we’ve offered ordinary people to improve their lifestyle and control their family’s earnings by running their own Betterware business. It’s totally flexible in terms of time, commitment and geographical location and is a genuinely fantastic opportunity to increase your earnings.
There’s no secret to how it works; the Betterware catalogue is our shop window, our sales teams distribute it directly to the public and the public browse and buy from it – it’s as simple as that!
Our sales structure is a close-knit community of family businesses all pulling together and our success is built on the outstanding support we offer our fantastic independent sales teams of Distributors, Coordinators and Territory Sales Agents, together with the excellent personal service they offer (our) customers.
