About us

We are the largest plant-based consumer product company in the world. Since 1871, we have been the authority in the spreads category which gives us unmatched experience, know-how and inspiration to deliver on our mission to create “a Better Plant-Based Future.”

Our History

Our company has been a leader in the plant-based spreads industry from the very beginning, when the patent for making plant-based spreads was acquired from its inventor, Hippolyte Mège-Mouriès in 1871. The company became known as Unilever in 1930 following a merger between Margarine Unie and Lever Brothers. The business continued to grow significantly through the years, when in December 2017, the business was sold and relaunched as Upfield.

Upfield today stands at the forefront of a new era, as the world is moving toward plant-based nutrition.

Why Plant-based Nutrition?

Upfield believes in the power of plant-based diets because they tend to be rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals that help lower blood pressure and LDL cholesterol, reduce the risk of diabetes, and help maintain a healthy weight. With our extensive knowledge, we are leading in this new era focused on more natural ingredients and processes that deliver healthier products that are great tasting and have superior quality.
