Unilever UK Limited Key Developments

Unilever UK & Ireland Launches Compressed Aerosol Cans for Male Deodorant Brands

Unilever UK & Ireland has launched compressed deodorant aerosol cans for its four male deodorant brands - Sure Men, Dove Men + Care, Lynx and Vaseline Men. The new cans require up to 50% less propellant but last just as long and use up to 25% less aluminum, enabling the reduction of carbon footprint of Unilever's male deodorant category. Switching to the new compressed can reduces the overall carbon footprint of the product by up to 25%. This takes Unilever closer to its challenging Sustainable Living Plan targets of halving the greenhouse gas impact of products across the lifecycle and the waste associated with the disposal of products by 2020. Compressed aerosols are very much a British innovation. Unilever has invested more than GBP 20 million into a new production line in its Leeds factory, the larger deodorants factory in Europe. The factory is co-located with Unilever's global deodorant R&D facility where both the format and the product innovation were developed.

Kerry Group Eyes Peperami

Kerry Group plc (ISE:KRZ) is among the leading bidders to acquire Peperami from Unilever UK Limited. Unilever has appointed UBS AG (SWX:UBSN) to run a sale process for Peperami. The sale process has been largely dominated by trade buyers, rather than private equity players. The sale is expected to generate tens of millions of pounds in proceeds. Kerry Group and Unilever spokesmen declined to comment.
