During a visit to the Vitex manufacturing premises, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko praised the cosmetics company, the first one of the kind in the country. They organized the complete production cycle in-house: from developing formulas to selling their products through a network of proprietary stores.  15 years ago Vitex took over a loss-making company in Uzda District and set up its branch there. At present the agricultural enterprise run by the cosmetics producer is one of the leading agricultural companies in Belarus. Next year, the construction of a new cosmetics manufacturing facility will be completed in the Uzda district creating three hundred new jobs.
