Unilever maker of Marmite and Dove soap goes Dutch for HQ as London loses out



Anglo-Dutch consumer goods giant Unilever, maker of Marmite and Dove soap, has chosen Rotterdam over London for its headquarters.

 
The company said it would move to a single legal entity in the Netherlands in an effort to become "more agile".


Unilever's dual-headed structure has existed since 1930, when Dutch margarine firm Unie merged with British soap maker Lever Brothers.


The company said the decision over its HQ was "not about Brexit".
