Story in Brief

Backdrop

  • The history of Lever brothers and the iconic Sunlight soap that helped Britain during a disease epidemic.
  • The scale, complexity and players involved in the supply chain and the intertwined nature of these relationships. Decisions cannot be taken without understanding the upstream and downstream implications within the supply chain.
  • The depth and span of the supply chain had reached the most remotest corners in India. Some of the places I visited, it felt like time has stood still for decades. Unilever’s supply chain had reached where some government initiatives hadn’t. From Bihar to Assam, Bangalore to Badi, my travels were nothing short of enlightening.
  • The process, structure and discipline enforced on a chaotic supply chain to bring standardization and to streamline management.
  • The quality of people employed and the entrepreneurs the company created in its wake as it grew rapidly within the country.
  • The introduction of hygiene,food and awareness in the smallest of villages.
