Unilever and DKSH expand partnership in Indonesia

DKSH has broadened its local agreement with PT. Unilever Indonesia, the leading fast moving consumer goods company in the market. Through this expansion, DKSH will provide three additional Indonesian regions with a wide range of Unilever products.

Jakarta, Indonesia, May 6, 2020 – DKSH Business Unit Consumer Goods, the leading partner for fast moving consumer goods companies seeking to grow their business in Asia, is expanding its partnership agreement with PT. Unilever Indonesia. DKSH, through its Indonesian partner, Wicaksana, has been distributing Unilever’s wide array of products in Gowa, Takalar, Jeneponto and Toraja in South Sulawesi as well as in Denpasar city, Bali, since 2019. In early 2020 the partnership continued with Gorontalo, a province in Sulawesi, followed by greater areas in Jakarta. The company’s solid performance over the year is one of the reasons Unilever decided to extend the partnership with DKSH.

 

With this partnership expansion, DKSH and Wicaksana will promote Unilever’s diverse range of products across all Indonesian trade channels, including general and modern trade, small-to medium-scale retailers as well as independent to big wholesalers.

 

Among the brands covered by the partnership are household names of personal and home care as well as food and beverage, such as Vaseline, Dove, Rexona, Pepsodent and Lux. All are targeted to Indonesian audiences of all ages and across all segments.

 

Victor Nesa Benedict, Vice President, Fast Moving Consumer Goods at DKSH commented: ‘’We are excited to offer improved market coverage for Unilever’s products through this extended partnership. With more than 30 years of experience, Wicaksana’s is the perfect partner to lead Unilever to success in Indonesia.”
