Swasth Nepal, Sakchyam Nepal
We endeavour to further strengthen our business in Nepal and continue to deliver consistent, competitive, profitable and responsible growth.
To earn the love and respect of Nepal by making a real difference to every Nepali
UNL has embarked on a transformational journey, and aims ‘to earn the love and respect of Nepal by making a real difference to every Nepali.’ We intend to do this by driving our brands and business to create a ‘Swastha’ (healthy) and ‘Sakchyam’ (prosperous) Nepal as a part of the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan.
Driven by these goals, UNL has started various initiatives in the areas of health and hygiene, enhancing livelihoods and environmental protection which is well incorporated in the purpose ‘Swastha Nepal, Sakchyam Nepal, Hamro Nepal.’
