Our brand Brooke Bond Red Label also topped the Business World leader board of purpose-led brands. Mr Shiva Krishnamurthy, VP – Tea & Foods received the award on behalf of the brand.
HUL was lauded for ‘…setting the agenda & leading the 'purpose' conversation in India; for embedding purpose in its DNA to reflect in its ethos, products, practices, brands, services & also in its very presence across platforms…’
The award certification mentions that ‘…HUL has inspired a generation of companies and businesses to take on the purpose and sustainability agenda in India.
