Unilever in Sri Lanka

We have been deeply rooted in Sri Lankan society for over 84 years, curating a landscape that preserves and nurtures the true Sri Lankan way of life. Recognised as one of Sri Lanka’s leading fast-moving consumer goods companies, we produce 96% of our products locally, touching the lives of 21 million Sri Lankans on a daily basis.

As a company that is committed to be a force for good, our purpose-led initiatives have fostered enduring bonds with every Sri Lankan household we have touched over the years. This strong connection has been nurtured through our best-in-class portfolio of brands geared to set industry standards whilst enhancing the livelihoods of the communities we operate in. As a company that is part of a larger eco system that encourages diversity and inclusion, we recognise that only a sustainable business can deliver exceptional outcomes.
