About the Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL)

  • Indian consumer products business Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL), with its headquarters in Mumbai, is controlled by the British. It belongs to the British business Unilever. Foods, drinks, cleaning supplies, toiletries, water purifiers, and other fast-moving consumer goods (FMCGs) are among its offerings.
  • Originally known as Hindustan Vanaspati Manufacturing Co., HUL was founded in 1931. In 1956, the several member organisations merged, and Hindustan Lever Limited was born.
  • In 14 categories, there were more than 50 product names in Hindustan Unilever’s portfolio as of 2019. The firm, which employs 21,000 people, reported sales of 34,619 crores in the fiscal year 2017–18.
  • In a 1:4.39 all-equity merger agreement announced in December 2018, HUL acquired the consumer division of GlaxoSmithKline India for US$3.8 billion. The integration of GSK’s 3,800 employees, however, remained problematic since, according to HUL, there was no provision in the agreement for staff retention. After completing all legal processes, HUL concluded its merger with GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (GSKCH India) in April 2020. HUL has a market value of Rs. 638548.42 crore in December 2022.
