FMCG major Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL) today said it will split its Foods and Refreshments (F&R) business into two separate units in line with its global category structure.

The company also announced appointment of Sudhir Sitapati as Executive Director, Refreshments.

“The Foods and Refreshments (F&R) business will now be organised into two separate businesses of Foods and Refreshments. Sudhir Sitapati currently Regional Category Vice President, Refreshments (South Asia & Africa), Unilever, will be inducted into the management committee of HUL as Executive Director, Refreshments,” HUL said in a NSE filing.
