We’ve been supplying the world with products to sip, soak, scrub, brush, bathe, bake, clean, cook and create for over 100 years, and we’ve always done it with the idea of helping to create a better world. In fact, when our doors first opened back in 1930, they were opened with the idea to “make cleanliness commonplace; to lessen work for women; to foster health and contribute to personal attractiveness, that life may be more enjoyable and rewarding for the people who use our products”.
It was this urge to create a business that could not only be good, but also do good that brought together Dutch margarine company, Margarine Unie, with British soapmaker Lever Brothers to create Unilever. And we’re carrying that same sense of purpose into the 21st century. We’re committed to helping people look good, feel good and get more out of life – with our purpose as a business being to ‘make sustainable living commonplace’.
