Brands and innovation are at the heart of everything we do. In Unilever, research and development (R&D) is the home of breakthrough technology for bigger, better, faster innovations.
We take breakthrough technologies and create products that give consumers an unbeatable experience. In this section you can find examples of this work.
R&D in Shanghai focuses on synthetic chemistry and traditional Chinese medicine.
Research & development in Unilever ranges from looking at emerging technologies, exploring possible applications and collaborating with external experts to projects lasting around six to nine months that adapt products for local markets.
