Latest From Unilever PLC
Already providing generic equivalents, Perrigo buys national brand from GSK as it acts on commitment to move into brand product sales. Plans to expand OTC Prevacid line, likely with an orally disintegrating tablet, and to grow entire US OTC gastrointestinal category.
Over the fiscal 2019 first half, “we've continued to expand our market share across most categories, increased our brand awareness, delivered double-digit growth in active loyalty members, increased traffic and delivered double-digit growth in almost every key merchandise category,” said Ulta CEO Mary Dillon 29 August. However, worsening makeup trends have induced the firm to reset full-year targets.
The Brazilian beauty giant reported 8.8% growth in The Body Shop sales in the fiscal 2019 first half, driven by strong gains in the UK and other key markets, offsetting the effect of 37 store closures in the past year as part of Natura’s transformation plan for the business. Meanwhile, incoming acquiree Avon is seeing better productivity, though sales continued to fall in the firm’s second quarter.
The oft-raised question of how consumers interpret natural claims has come up again in the Advertising Standards Authority’s dispute resolution forum in the UK. PZ Cussons, which markets Original Source shower gel with “100% Natural Fragrance,” brought a challenge against Unilever/Radox, targeting the latter’s “100% Nature Inspired Fragrance” claim on similar products.
