How & where we work
Innovation is right at the heart of Unilever, and our dynamic R&D environment attracts top-class scientists who enjoy the best of both worlds – being at the cutting edge of technology and seeing their work deliver real benefits daily.
On 22 September 2008 we opened our latest global Centre of Excellence in Cisterna, Italy, by cutting a giant pasta ribbon. The centre will focus on composite food products such as meals, salads, snacks and bakery goods.
