Unilever chooses London for corporate HQ

Thu, 11/06/2020

Anglo-Dutch consumer products giant Unilever has announced it is to scrap its dual-headed legal structure and unify under a single parent company, Unilever plc, which will be headquartered in London. The UK government has been lobbying for the company to choose London ahead of Rotterham, and following this announcement the business secretary Alok Sharma said this is “a clear vote of confidence in the UK”. Unilever owns some of the best known consumer brands, including Marmite, Persil and Timotei.
