Welcome to Unilever’s Online Archive Catalogue


Unilever Archives holds one of the most important collections of business records in the world. Unilever is a business founded on a sense of purpose, and our unique heritage still shapes the way we do business today. To find out more about Unilever and our vision and values, please visit www.unilever.com.

You can use the online catalogue to search the collections.

We have a search room and library in our offices at Port Sunlight that can be used for research. If you are a researcher thinking about coming to the Archives for a research project, please visit: Unilever Archives Online for information about access and availability. Visits to the Archive are by appointment only between 10am-4pm on weekdays and are dependent on staff being available on site to assist.

Not all of our collections are available on our online catalogue yet, access is only permitted to open and catalogued records subject to Unilever’s closure periods.


The Unilever Art, Archive and Records Management searchroom and library in Port Sunlight is closed until further notice as we deal with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

We are processing our COVID backlog whilst a new Discovery Centre for visitors is being created. We look forward to welcoming you to our new Discovery Centre.

We are currently not able to say when we will re-open. Any updates to our services will be posted on this page.
