Innovation is the engine of Unilever’s growth; the lifeblood of our business. Our future depends on our ability to bring bigger & better innovations to market more quickly than our competitors.
Unilever is recognised as a world leader in R&D, both in terms of innovation (new products and mixes) and renovation (refreshing existing products).
We employ more than 6000 R&D professionals in six global research centres, 13 global product development centres and regional development & country implementation centres.
Chief Research & Development Officer, Professor Geneviève Berger, outlines how our R&D teams create unique products with proven benefits for consumers around the world.
We believe our products make a real contribution to an individual’s wellbeing and that of their community, while having the least possible adverse effect on the environment at every stage in the product lifecycle.
The common thread running through all our R&D activities is a direct connection between science, technology and consumer needs.
