Unilever to Invest in Ivory Coast Factories, FratMat Says

June 12, 2012

Unilever Plc will invest 6 million euros ($7.5 million) this year to improve its factories in Ivory Coast, Fraternite-Matin reported, citing David Mureithi, managing director of Unilever’s Ghanaian unit.

The consumer-goods group wants to bolster sales in northern Ivory Coast, which was cut off from regular supply channels because of a violent post-election conflict last year, the Abidjan-based newspaper said.
