This integration will help HUL increase organisational agility and better serve local consumers while harnessing the advantage of global scale. The integration of these two categories is also in alignment with the structure of Unilever globally.

The company has also announced some key changes in the Management Committee. Sudhir Sitapati, presently Executive Director, Refreshment, will be re-designated as Executive Director, Foods & Refreshment, and will be responsible for the integrated Foods and Refreshment (F&R) business. He will continue to be a part of the Management Committee of HUL.
