Stock Quote Unilever Indonesia - UNVR:
Unilever Indonesia's business activities and products comprise the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of consumer goods. This includes soaps, detergents, margarine, ice cream, savory, soy sauce, cosmetic products, tea based beverages and fruit juice.
Products manufactured by Unilever Indonesia can be divided in two business lines: home and personal care products (including soaps, detergents, cosmetics), which account for about 73 percent of the company's total sales, and foods and refreshment (including margarine, dairy products, ice cream, tea), which account for the remaining 27 percent of sales. It is estimated that each Indonesian household uses at least one product that is sold by Unilever.
In 2012, the Mega Distribution Centre in Cibitung (West Java) started operations. With a floor area of around 80,000 square meters, it constitutes the biggest warehouse in Indonesia for a Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) company and the largest Unilever warehouse in the world. Unilever Indonesia’s distribution network comprises more than one million outlets across the Indonesian archipelago, more than half of which is covered directly by the company. The company's products are marketed through a network of more than 800 independent distributors who serve hundreds of thousands of stores across Indonesia.
About 55 percent of the company's input costs are linked to foreign currencies. That is why sharp rupiah depreciation constitutes a challenge for Unilever Indonesia.
Per 2016 Unilever Indonesia owns nine factories; seven located in the Jababeka Industrial Zone (Cikarang, near Jakarta) and two in Rungkut (Surabaya). The company's head office relocated from Jakarta to BSD City in late-2016. Unilever Indonesia has 39 core brands and nearly 1,000 stock keeping units.
Unilever Indonesia says it has only just begun to tap the potential of Indonesia's market. Regarding the medium to long term, the company expects to grow further on the back of Indonesia’s demographic profile. The country, Southeast Asia's largest economy, has a young and growing population. In combination with Indonesia's robust economic growth it creates a rapidly expanding middle class that enjoys rising disposable income, hence forming a strengthening consumer force.
