Unilever is one of the world's leading consumer goods companies producing foods, home and personal care brands. In 2012, Unilever launched a new foundation with the goal to improve the quality of life through the provision of hygiene, sanitation, access to clean drinking water and basic nutrition. WFP is one of five leading global organisations tackling these ambitious goals in collaboration with Unilever.
Historically, Unilever and WFP have worked together since 2007 in numerous countries and together have provided assistance to millions of beneficiaries across the globe. Together we have engaged in signature partnerships such as ‘Together for Child Vitality’ and ‘Project Laser Beam’; and furthermore, during emergencies Unilever never fail to step up and set an example, providing cash for WFP’s operations corporate cash, as well as mobilizing thousands of employees and consumers around the world to become involved in WFP’s work.
Globally, Unilever continues to support WFP with fundraising drives through consumer-facing campaigns around cause-related marketing campaigns on their products and also through top European supermarkets.
