On any given day, two billion people use Unilever products to look good, feel good and get more out of life. In each Unilever market, the emphasis has been on selling our core brands to mainstream consumers and customers.

However, global trends such as globalization, migration, ease of international travel, urbanization and the rise of new retail channels, such as E-Commerce have led to fragmentation of consumer and customer base, consumption moments and channels – in which lies business opportunities. While this has resulted in underserviced consumers and customers, it has also created new, unexplored opportunities or white spaces.

As a result, Unilever International was set up in 2012 as Unilever’s complementary Route-to-Market globally. We aim to serve the underserved and create exceptional value by filling challenging white spaces in a responsible and sustainable way.
