Introduction to Unilever

On any given day, two billion people use our products. Unilever recognizes that consumers are inviting us into their homes and into their lives when they choose our brands.

It's a privilege we do not take lightly.

Brands trusted across the globe

With 400 brands spanning 14 categories of home, personal care and foods products, no other company touches so many people's lives in so many different ways.

Our brand portfolio has made us leaders in every field in which we work. It ranges from much-loved world favorites including Lipton, Knorr, Dove and Omo, to trusted local brands such as Promise and Suave. 

From comforting soups to warm a winter's day, to sensuous soaps that make you feel fabulous, our products help people get more out of life. 

We're constantly enhancing our brands to deliver more intense, rewarding product experiences. We invest over $1 billion every year in cutting-edge research and development, and have five laboratories around the world that explore new thinking and techniques to help develop our products.

Continuous development

Consumer research plays a vital role in our brands' development. We're constantly developing new products and developing tried and tested brands to meet changing tastes, lifestyles and expectations. And our strong roots in local markets also mean we can respond to consumers at a local level. 

By helping improve people's diets and daily lives, we can help them keep healthier for longer, look good and give their children the best start in life. 

We also believe that the very business of conducting business in a responsible way has a positive social impact. We create and share wealth, invest in local economies and develop people's skills – both inside our organization and in the communities around us. 

Listening to our people

Focusing on performance and productivity, we encourage our employees to come up with new ideas and fresh approaches. That’s because we have a strong sense of responsibility to the communities we serve. We work hard to conduct our business with integrity - respecting our employees, our consumers, our investors and the environment around us.

Dedicated to serving consumers and the communities where we live, work and play, Unilever employs more than 11,000 people in the United States - generating over $8 billion in sales.
