Last quote by Paul Polman

Better than Warren's, . What we have talked about with government is that it strikes me that the UK is not – and I put my words carefully – in an equal position. You have to have a discussion of why these differences are there, and whether you are putting yourself in a good position or a bad position, especially at the time of Brexit and many other things.feedback

When Heinz was for sale, which wasn't long ago, we were not interested because we thought it didn't fit. When Kraft was for sale, we came to the same conclusion.

Some people say to me why do you spend so much time on this? And my answer really is, I'm fortunate enough to get this job when I don't have children at home any more. I have a supportive wife, I really like what I'm doing, so for me the weekends are the same as the weeks.feedback

We continue to invest very heavily in the UK with our research centres that are here, Port Sunlight has had a major investment and we've added jobs there. One of these papers out there said I want protection. I've never said that. I've really never said that.

After a long history in Unilever, we have decided that the future of the spreads business now lies outside the group.feedback

Speed of innovation has never been faster. It's confusing a lot of companies. It's confusing a lot of individuals.feedback

It's not so simple as some of our other competitors out there make you believe, which has been roughly translated into, Let's cut all the costs as long as we can get away with it to show you better margins for a short period of time. But I can't promise you any growth along the way.feedback
