Company profile
The mission of Unilever is to add vitality to life. They meet everyday needs for nutrition, hygiene, and personal care with brands that help people feel good, look good and get more out of life.

With 400 brands spanning 14 categories of home, personal care and foods products, no other company touches so many people’s lives in so many different ways.
Their brand portfolio has made them leaders in every field in which they work. It ranges from much-loved world favourites including Lipton, Knorr, Dove and Omo, to trusted local brands such as Blue Band and Suave.

They are constantly enhancing their brands to deliver more intense, rewarding product experiences. They invest €1 billion every year in cutting edge research and development, and have five laboratories around the world that explore new thinking and techniques to help develop their products.

Today Unilever employs 223 000 people in 100 countries world-wide, and supports the jobs of many thousands of distributors, contractors and suppliers.
Unilever R&D built a new Global Foods Innovation Centre in Wageningen, the Netherlands.
In this way Unilever creates critical mass in expertise areas to ensure that the technologies ultimately bring benefit-led, breakthrough innovations to the markets. Unilever aims to evolve their R&D sites into innovation ecosystems to leverage the knowledge and expertise of external partners.

Unilever is committed to ensure that its products are compliant with legislation and that clear information is provided on their use and any risks that are associated with their use.
To translate this mission efficiently into action, and to ensure that Unilever complies with its own high standards as well as with the technical aspects of legislation, is the task of the Global Product Compliance (GPC) team. The GPC is part of the Regulatory Affairs Organisation in R&D. The team supports the entire Unilever portfolio, deals with a high variety in compliance activities and interacts with many functions in Unilever.
