Unilever factory in Hindustan receives recognition from World Economic Forum

Hindustan Unilever (HUL) announced on Wednesday that its Dapada factory, which makes home care products such as Surf Excel, Rin and Vim, has joined the Lighthouse Network, making it part of the World Economic Forum-recognized community of manufacturing facilities (WEF) for the application of advanced technologies, innovations and sustainable practices to modernize business operations.

The factory is the first FMCG manufacturing facility in India to be granted this status.

The Global Lighthouse Network includes locations that have implemented end-to-end digitization across the entire value chain, pushing the boundaries of technological advancement. These technologies lead to reduced manufacturing costs, greater agility and speed.

Established in 2001, the Dapada site produces 3 million units daily for brands such as Surf Excel, Vim, Rin and Wheel. This website started its digital journey in 2018 and is known to be the first dedicated Unilever homepage in the world to be recognized as an E2E lighthouse factory.

Commenting on the announcement, Sanjiv Mehta, President of Unilever South Asia and Chairman and Managing Director of HUL, said: “The WEF award is a testament to our continued focus on making the supply chain fit for the future as part of our ‘Reimagine HUL’ agenda to make future. This is the first time an FMCG factory in India has achieved this status and I hope more will follow as Unilever increasingly digitizes its supply chain function.” Unilever factory in Hindustan receives recognition from World Economic Forum
