The longest-serving manufacturer in Nigeria, Unilever remains dedicated to cost optimization and promoting health and hygiene through its purposeful brands. This commitment is reflected in the company's high return on assets of 10.94%, as per InvestingPro's data, highlighting its efficient use of resources to generate earnings.
