Making quality products affordable for working people. Supporting health, hygiene, and nutrition. Providing better conditions for employees. The ambitions which motivated our founding companies can still be seen in the way our brands are working to create positive change today.
Of course, times have changed since 1930. And there is still a huge amount of work we have to do as a business to ‘make sustainable living commonplace’.
But we think our founders would recognise and applaud the spirit behind our sustainability ambitions. And we're sure that they'd join us in celebrating the successes of our company and our brands.
They, like us, knew that companies with purpose last.
So to mark our birthday, we’re sharing some of our favourite stories from our nine decades of history.
Beginning with our people, who are at the heart of our success. Hear from some of them in our birthday film – including Elma Jones, who joined Unilever in 1934, Keerthana Kasi who joined in 1996, and Samantha Thian, who joined in 2018.
