Interviewed by Bloomberg BusinessWeek in May of 2020, the CEO of Unilever says:
"Our company is guided by three deeply held beliefs: That brands with purpose grow, companies with purpose last, and people with purpose thrive. And we think that refrain is going to be even more relevant in a post-coronavirus world than in a pre-coronavirus world."Alan Jope sees trends shaped by the pandemic that include an emphasis on hygiene, on staying safe at home and on the "distance economy." He indicates these trends point to more in-home consumption and digital consumption.
Stay safe as this pandemic continues.
