About Unilever


About us

We are the global company behind powerhouse brands such as Dove, Magnum and Surf.

Our products are sold in more than 190 countries and are used by two billion people every day, to help themselves feel good, look good and get more out of life.

Global strength

We are a global leader in the dynamic fast moving consumer goods industry, with market-leading brands in the personal care, foods, homecare and refreshment categories. We are strong in both the developed economies and in what we call the developing and emerging markets, which already represent 55% of our business.

We have ambitious growth plans, aiming to double the size of our business while reducing our environmental footprint.

Iconic brands

We have many of the world’s best-loved and most successful brands. Our portfolio includes 12 €1 billion brands and, in Dove, a €3 billion personal care brand.

Our strong brands reflect the potency and reach of our marketing.

Our marketing expertise is acknowledged by our peers: since 1961, for example, we have won more than 200 Cannes Lion awards for our advertising.

New ways of doing business

Our growth strategy reflects a commitment to new and exciting ways of doing business. It has four interlocking strands:

  • Our world-class brands and innovation – in 2011, we spent €1 billion on R&D to continue developing products that delight consumers
  • Our great people – we are committed to finding and developing the world’s best talent and leaders and to nurturing the culture and organisation to win
  • Winning in the market-place – by reaching more consumers, more often, and expanding the benefits of our products and by developing closer partnerships with retailers
  • Winning through continuous improvement – by doing everything more effectively every day, from higher-quality products to faster product launches

Doing well by doing good

The Unilever Sustainable Living Plan is our blueprint for reducing our environmental impact. The plan maps out how, by 2020, we will:

  • Help one billion people improve their health and wellbeing
  • Halve the environmental footprint of our products
  • Use 100% sustainably-grown agricultural ingredients

The social commitment implicit in our focus on sustainable living is nothing new to Unilever. It goes back to the social responsibility and philanthropy of our 19th century founders and their determination to ‘do well by doing good’. It inspires us that, 125 years ago, the company’s pioneering leaders were already intent on creating better futures. Unilever people are continuing to carry forward that mission today.
