The multinational explained that this determination was rooted in the transformations that the industry has faced "and the transformation of Unilever's production matrix at a global level, which has accelerated in Chile the need to reconfigure the operation that was already facing serious competitiveness problems" .

The company assured that it will continue to be present in Chile with its products "and committed to the security of supply."

In this context, BioBioChile asked if this determination will mean a reduction of its personnel in the country, to which it indicated that the information contained in this note is for the moment the only official information to be reported.

Unilever also pointed out that it was necessary to make synergies with other Latin American operations to make its operation in Chile sustainable in the medium and long term.

"The company will continue to produce food at the factory located on Calle Panamericana, in the commune of Conchalí," he added.

Unilever Chile has been present in the country for more than 90 years through emblematic brands such as Rexona, Sedal, Dove, Pepsodent, Hellmann's, Maizena, Lipton, OMO, Quix and Cif, among others.

In October of last year, the Chilean company ICB, after an agreement with Unilever, achieved the acquisition of the Tea Club brand through a sale that also included the Emblem brand.

At that time, the multinational had detailed that in the tea business it would focus only on Lipton.
