|Description||Lipton of Nigeria took on a new identity as part of the Food and Drinks Division of Lever Brothers during 1985. The merger had been initiated in 1980, to provide the necessary financial resources for a planned expansion in Lipton and ensure diversification for Lever Brothers, through specialisation with Lipton, into the food and drinks area. The merger was sanctioned by Federal High Court on 24th July 1985 and ratified on 31st July 1985. Lipton's headquarters are based in Apapa, as are Lever Brothers', so it was relatively simple for them to combine resources to streamline operations and centralise facilities such as warehousing and distribution.|
These records include staff records.
