    Hindustan Unilever expected to report 8.2-12.3% revenue growth in Q2FY22 – 3 things to look for as company announces results on Tuesday
    “Expect 8% volume and 6% price/mix growth to drive 14% revenue growth, margins to improve QoQ led by cooling off in palm oil prices offset by higher A&P spends,” Yes Securities said in its report.

    Well, of course Unilever would fail. Ben&Jerry's pinpointed only one country, one nation of people from all nations of the world (including undemocratic ones that butchered deliberately millions)... so when you do that, your stock will suffer of a very bad sentiments, to say the least.

    Axios' Alexi McCammond asked, during an interview in the brand’s home state of Vermont: “You guys are big proponents of voting rights. Why do you still sell ice cream in Georgia? Texas — abortion bans. Why are you still selling there?”

    “I don’t know,” Ben Cohen said with a laugh. “It’s an interesting question. I don’t know what that would accomplish. We’re working on those issues, of voting rights. ... I think you ask a really good question. And I think I’d have to sit down and think about it for a bit.”

    Yep, that's the guys in charge of the woke policy of B&J. Just randomly shooting in the dark.

    UL down on big up day. Emmett’s a shrewd trader. I’ll go with Sandi’s 49 prediction. Emmett says the 300000000+ US market isn’t important.

    Sustainability at the source: How Unilever is addressing deforestation, living wages, and regenerative agriculture

    How is Unilever ensuring sustainability in sourcing regions? Hanneke Faber, President Foods & Refreshment at Unilever, weighs in.
    Unilever is one of the world’s largest consumer goods companies. With products available in more than 190 countries, it is estimated that 2.5bn people use at least one Unilever product per day.

    In food, Unilever has some big names in its portfolio. From Lipton to Magnum, Knorr and Hellman’s, the company’s Foods & Refreshment division boasts an annual turnover of more than $19bn.

    Unilever has a significant footprint in soy, palm oil and cocoa, amongst other ingredients commonly associated with unethical practices in sourcing regions. The company is committed, however, to addressing sustainability at the source, according to Hanneke Faber, President Foods & Refreshment at Unilever.

    “Farmers are a critical part of the entire food system,” she said at FoodNavigator’s Climate Smart Food event, adding that Unilever is focused on three key areas in sourcing regions: a deforestation-free supply chain, living wages, and regenerative agriculture.

    -----------------

    Spotlight on deforestation: ‘Not all oil is certifiable’
    Along with F&B giants including Nestlé, PepsiCo, Kellogg’s, Mondelēz, and General Mills, Unilever had committed to eliminating deforestation from its supply chain by 2020.

    With this deadline now come and gone, FMCGs have new timelines in their sight. “We’ve committed to achieving a deforestation-free supply chain by 2023,” Faber told FoodNavigator.

    “The challenge here is traceability. We source from a very large variety of suppliers around the world, they harvest in places like Brazil and Indonesia, and we’ve found it’s not always 100% certifiable what happens to every drop of oil we buy.

    “But we absolutely have to get there and we have to get there fast. This is where technology increasingly helps.”

    ------------------------------

    “We have a partnership with Google Cloud to capture satellite images, so that we exactly see, 24/7, that nothing gets cut down for the ingredients we buy,” the Foods & Refreshments chief explained.

    Unilever impacts 8% of global palm oil production.
    And in soy and palm oil specifically, Unilever is working with Orbital Insight to combine satellite images of Indonesia and Brazil with geolocation data, to paint a clearer picture of ‘the first mile’ – the journey that palm oil fruit or soybeans travel from the plantation to a mill.

    ---------------------------

    Ensuring farmers and suppliers along the supply chain in sourcing countries earn a living wage is another priority for Unilever.

    A living wage, or living income, is one that gives people enough to provide for their family’s basic needs for food, water, clothing, housing, education, transportation and healthcare.

    “We’ve committed to ensure that everyone who directly provides goods and services to us earns at least a living wage by 2030,” said Faber.

    Currently, Unilever pays all of its own employees – just over 150,000 people – at least a living wage. However, this latest commitment, announced earlier this year, means the company will secure the same for people beyond its own workforce. “Especially focusing on the most vulnerable,” she continued, “and that’s in manufacturing and in agriculture – so smallholder farmers.”

    Unilever has a challenge in front of it. It will require collaboration with suppliers, other businesses, government and NGOs to create ‘systemic change’, we were told.

    Unilever asks its suppliers to comply with its Responsible Sourcing Policy.
    Unilever asks its suppliers to comply with its Responsible Sourcing Policy, made up of 12 fundamental principles. These aim to ensure a number of key human rights are respected.

    This includes making sure that all workers are paid fair wages, working hours for all workers are reasonable, workers are of an appropriate age, and land rights of communities, including indigenous peoples, will be protected and promoted.

    So what happens when these principles are breached? “If a supplier is found to be in breach of those expectations, our aim is always to first work together and agree some sort of remediation plan, rather than automatically stop business,” Faber explained.

    There would be, however, a ‘number’ of occasions when a relationship with a supplier would be suspendeded, she revealed, but stressed that is not always the first port of call – particularly where living wages are concerned.

    As a long time investor in ULVR, I see this as nothing less than a perfect buying opportunity.
    Today is the second time in three weeks that I've added to my position.

    "The New Jersey Division of Investment, which manages several state pension funds, said this week it planned to sell $182 million of stocks, bonds and other securities linked to Unilever, accusing the company of breaking state laws that prohibit the boycott of Israel. It didn’t give a time frame for the sale, and Unilever can appeal the decision."
