Kathmandu, September 3

This week marks the 25th year of Unilever Nepal Ltd (UNL) in Nepal. Over the years, the company has been manufacturing products associated with international brands like Dove, Sunsilk, Fair & Lovely and Lux. UNL, in fact, is a Nepali, Anglo-Dutch and Indian company, which is the only company in the world to have this lineage.

Unilever Nepal is also one of the few ‘fast moving consumer goods’ producing companies in the country and it has been doing so with an objective ‘to earn the love and respect of Nepal by making a real difference to every Nepali’, which has been the key to its success.

Since its establishment, the company has not confined its activities to business only and has been involved in various social initiatives to make its presence felt across the length and breadth of the country. One of its more successful initiatives has been the hand wash behaviour change programme, ‘School of 5’, where it has been able to reach out to 10 per cent of the population in four years.

According to the company, ‘Swastha Nepal, Saxchyam Nepal, Hamro Nepal’ under its Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP) initiative focuses on health and hygiene, environment, and in enhancing livelihoods in Nepal. “Sustainable living is Unilever’s way of working. Our business model drives growth that is consistent, profitable, competitive and responsible,” as per the company.

Unilever in the recent past has set three big goals. As per the company, by 2020 it wants to help over one billion people take action to improve their health and well-being. Another initiative it has rolled out is by 2030 the company plans to halve the environmental footprint of making and use of their products as business grows and lastly by 2020 it wants to enhance livelihood of millions of people as company expands.

Driven by these goals, Unilever Nepal Ltd has been involved in various initiatives in health and hygiene, enhancing livelihoods and for a better environment.

The company believes that the trust that consumers have in their brand is the ultimate measure of their success.
