About Unilever

Unilever is a British company, one of the world market leaders in food and household products (including perfumes). It is headquartered in London, UK.

At the end of the 20th century up until the merger between Procter & Gamble and Gillette in 2005, it was the world's largest consumer products manufacturer, second-largest in terms of sales as of 2020.

Employed 155,000 people (2019), capitalised at the beginning of 2020 at $107bn, revenues (2019) at €52bn, profits (2019) at €6bn. Chairman Niels Andersen, CEO Alan Jope.

In 2021, the company changed its Dutch jurisdiction to the UK.
