Romanian company Unilever has announced that it will invest 20 million euros in a new production facility for personal care products in the Kyiv region, Ukraine, to support the growth of its business and demonstrate a long-term commitment to the country. Construction will begin this year, with the factory expected to open in 2024, BalkanEngineer.com has learned from Romaniajournal.ro.
The new factory will create around 100 jobs and produce personal care products including shampoos and shower gels for brands such as Dove, Axe, TRESemmé and Clear. The hub will primarily supply to the domestic Ukrainian market, but has future export potential to European markets.
The factory will be built to the highest environmental standards using renewable energy technologies, thus contributing to Unilever's goal of net zero emissions along the value chain by 2039.
“This investment demonstrates our long-term commitment to the country and its people, including our employees, customers and partners. Our new production facility will create new jobs, increase our production capacity and, above all, serve the needs of Ukrainian consumers with high-quality, sustainable products," commented Vasyl Bovdilov, General Manager of Unilever Ukraine.
