About HUL

A subsidiary of a British company called Unilever, Hindustan Unilever Ltd is a consumer goods giant headquartered in Mumbai.

It is a fast-moving consumer goods (FMGC) business that claims to touch the lives of millions of people across the country with over 50 brands spanning more than 15 categories including skin and hair care, foods and drinks, home and hygiene, oral care, and more.

Some of the most popular brands in its portfolio include Dove, Wheel, Rin, Kissan, Clinic Plus, Vaseline, Surf Excel, Lux, Horlicks, Pepsodent, Pond’s, and Glow & Lovely.


The three Indian subsidiaries of Unilever – Hindustan Vanaspati Manufacturing Company, United Traders Limited, and Lever Brothers India Limited merged in 1956 to form Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL) and offered 10% of its equity to the public. After this, several other brands like Pond’s, Brooke Bond, Lakme, and others merged with HUL, making it stronger and bigger.

The foods and beverages industry saw a series of alliances, mergers, and acquisitions in the 1990s. Brooke Bond Lipton India Limited (BBLIL) merged with HUL in 1996 in an attempt to capture opportunities from domestic and international markets and enable fund investments required for new categories.

A historic event took place in 2000 when the Indian government decided to give 74 percent equity of Modern Foods to the company. It introduced a series of initiatives in the 2000s including the ‘Pureit’ water purifier and Direct to Home. HUL received numerous awards and recognitions and topped the lists of FMCG companies and Indian businesses.

In 2020, HUL acquired VWash, a leading female intimate hygiene brand. With the merger with GSK Consumer Healthcare, HUL’s portfolio includes the iconic health drinks Boost and Horlicks, making the company the largest F&R business in the country.
