‘Zero hunger’ is one of Unilever’s global sustainable development goals and we are delighted to be one of their trusted partners in the UK, who are turning this goal into reality.
In 2017 we launched a campaign together where 5p from selected Hellmann’s, Knorr, and Colman’s products purchased in Tesco stores was donated to helping fight UK hunger.
Building on this success, in 2018 the campaign launched again with products on sale in Tesco stores and online, this time with iconic Unilever brands PG Tips and Marmite joining Knorr, Hellmann’s, and Colman’s products specially branded to ‘Help Fight UK Hunger’, along with a wider marketing campaign, highlighting the issue of poverty and hunger in the UK and our work together to tackle it.
Professor Green added his support and visited his local food bank in Lewisham.
We are hugely grateful to Unilever for their generous donation from the sales of these products. Their assistance has enabled us to support our network of food banks across the UK to provide essential emergency food in the face of increasing demand, as well as to equip our network of volunteers with the tools they need to help people access the additional support they need so they are no longer locked in poverty.
Every day, 2.5 billion people use Unilever products to feel good, look good, and get more out of life. In the UK, 16 of their 40 brands are market leaders including Persil, Dove, Magnum, Flora, Marmite, and Lynx – you can find their products in the kitchens, fridges, freezers and bathrooms in nine out of every ten UK homes.
