Innovation in Unilever

Brands and innovation are at the heart of everything we do. In Unilever, research and development (R&D) is the home of breakthrough technology for bigger, better, faster innovations. 

Success for us means creating products that keep pace with changes in consumer lifestyles and that appeal to people at all income levels.
