Unilever in Korea

Our purpose is to lead the way.

Unilever Korea is not just a simple distributing company that sells existing products only but is a manufacturing company that also produces new products under our own Made In Korea brand. In recognition of their excellent quality, these products are being exported to all over the world. To contribute to further growth in the beauty sector, Unilever Korea acquired a global cosmetic company, Unilever AHC (ex-Carver Korea) in 2017.

Unilever Korea operates under UI (Unilever International) to have a faster speed to market and become more agile.

The purpose of UI is ‘to serve the underserved’. UI is the white space partner for Unilever across many countries across the globe including the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France, the United Arab Emirates, India, Singapore, and South Korea. In 2012, UI was set up to serve emerging – and fast-growing – geographies, consumers, customers, and channels worldwide that were created by trends like globalization, migration, travel, and digital commerce.
