Unilever in Canada

Unilever’s ambition is to be the global leader in sustainable business, showing that our purpose-led, future-fit business model delivers superior performance. At Unilever Canada, we work every day to uphold this exciting vision.

Our portfolio includes iconic brands such as Dove, Knorr, Hellmann’s, Lipton, Magnum, Axe, Ben & Jerry’s, Degree, Schmidt’s, SheaMoisture, Seventh Generation, TRESemmé, Vaseline and Vim. Many of these brands hold leading positions in their categories. In fact, we are #1 in the deodorants, spoonable dressings (i.e. mayonnaise) and skin cleansing categories. We proudly make our Hellmann’s mayonnaise in the Greater Toronto Area and our Simcoe, Ontario facility makes our Breyer’s, Ben & Jerry’s and Magnum ice cream brands as well as Klondike and Popsicle.

The Unilever Compass, our sustainable business strategy, is set out to help us deliver superior performance and drive sustainable and responsible growth, while:

  • improving the health of the planet;
  • improving people's health, confidence and wellbeing; and
  • contributing to a fairer and more socially inclusive world.

At Unilever Canada, we are taking action to reduce plastic waste by reformulating our packaging and increasing the use of recycled plastic. We are a founding member of the Canada Plastics Pact, a multi-stakeholder, industry-led collaboration platform which aims to tackle plastic packaging waste and pollution.

Our Hellmann’s brand is helping to reduce food waste by encouraging consumers to use their leftovers and the Dove Self Esteem Fund continues to help educate youth about the importance of self-esteem and building body confidence. Through our commitment to ‘Act 2 Unstereotype’, we are challenging ourselves to create marketing, not just advertising, that will help influence the next generation of people to be free from prejudice.

Unilever has a long history in Canada having started operating in the 1890’s in downtown Toronto with the Lever Brother’s soap factory.We are still headquartered in downtown Toronto today but have a national presence. Our people are committed to making sustainable living commonplace. On a daily basis, we look to engage with our consumers, customers and stakeholders to inspire innovation while doing more good for the planet.
