Mission of Unilever
In the last five years, Unilever has built its business by focusing on its brands, streamlining how Unilever works, and improving its insight into the evolving needs and tastes of consumers. Now Unilever is taking the next step in simplification - by aligning ourselves around a clear common mission.
Unilever recognizes that the world in which is being operated is changing. Consumers are increasingly bringing their views as citizens into their buying decisions, demanding more from the companies behind the brands. They want companies and brands they trust.
Unilever embraces these new expectations. Unilever’s heritage of good governance, product quality and long experience of working with communities gives a strong base to the consumers. Unilever aims to build on this by taking the next step in transparency and accountability. Unilever will stand visibly as Unilever, behind its products and everything Unilever does, everywhere.
Every day 150 million people in over 150 countries choose Unilever’s products. Already, most of its brands give the benefits of feeling good, looking good and getting more out of life. Sunsilk, for example, helps consumers feel happier because their hair looks great. In the future, Unilever brands will do even more to add vitality to life. Unilever’s vitality mission will focus its brands on meeting consumers needs arising from the biggest issues around the world today – ageing populations, urbanization, changing diets and lifestyles. Unilever see growing consumer need for:
•A healthy lifestyle
•More variety, quality, taste and enjoyment
•Time, as an increasingly precious commodity
