                               UNILEVER STATEMENT



         CESCAU CONFIRMS TRANSFORMATION WILL DELIVER LONG-TERM AMBITION





Unilever CEO Patrick Cescau today joined other industry leaders at a conference
in Paris. He spoke about the long-term transformation of the business, how he
would sustain current performance, and the long-term strategy for value
creation.

Commenting after the presentation on the growth potential for the business he
re-confirmed Unilever's long-term ambition to grow ahead of its markets as set
out with its 4th Quarter results in 2005. Cescau refused to outline a timeframe
for achieving his ambition of above market growth.

Cescau outlined how he aims to move the business into higher growth space
through a better allocation of resources, innovation, acquisition, and a focus
on Vitality.

If Unilever's markets grew at the upper end of their estimated range this would
result in sales growth of up to 4-5%.
