BOAO, March 22. /TASS/. The global giant Unilever plans to boost production capacities in Russia in the long term, Board Chairman of the company Michael Treschow said on Tuesday at the Boao Forum for Asia in China.
"No, [we are] not moving [production capacities] from China to Russia. We will expand our capacity in Russia. For a long future, of course, we hope to be able to have even better presence in Russia as well. But right now as you know, it is difficult time, so now it is more needed to survive." Treschow said.
Unilever has been operating in Russia since 1992. It currently holds 4 big manufacturing sites including dressing, tea and home and personal care factories in St. Petersburg, food and ice cream factories in Tula and Omsk, and a cosmetics factory in Ekaterinburg.
Unilever’s brand portfolio in Russia includes such well-known brands as Calve ketchup, mayonnaise and sauces, Rama spreads, Knorr soups and seasonings, Beseda, Brook Bond and Lipton tea in the food category; Dove shampoo and skin care products, Sunsilk and Timotei shampoo and haircare products, Rexona and Axe deodorants, and others.
