Have a look around your kitchen, and the chances are that you’ll find more than one label reading ‘Unilever’ (ULVR). Indeed, since its inception nearly a century ago, the eponymous group has evolved into an international consumer goods giant – owning everything from Hellman’s mayonnaise, to Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, to Knorr stock cubes and Dove soap. In total that amounts to a portfolio of more than 400 household brands, with a Unilever product found in seven out of 10 homes across the globe and used by at least 2.5bn people every day.
