Unilever To Build Global Foods Innovation Centre
Unilever has announced it is developing a new, global, Foods Innovation Centre, in Wageningen (The Netherlands). The new centre is expected to be operational by April 2019.
Three of Unilever's Research & Development (R&D) departments, currently based in Vlaardingen (The Netherlands), Heilbronn (Germany) and Poznan (Poland) are to share the new location.
By co-locating the R&D facilities for Home Care, Personal Care, and Foods & Refreshment, Unilever aims to create an innovative hotbed, in collaboration with the research departments of Wageningen University and other scientific institutes.
Amanda Sourry, President Unilever Foods: "The Foods Innovation eco-system in Wageningen will bring together a strong combination of in-house R&D and external science and technology, talent and facilities, increasing the impact of Unilever’s own resources and capabilities, and ultimately creating the innovative power that we need to provide leadership in Foods."
