Quarter 3 2019 financials
Unilever’s revenue dropped in Quarter three 2019. It posted total sales of GHc342.8 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared to GHc448.4 million in Quarter three 2018.
The results the company described reflected challenging trading conditions as well as efforts to reduce high inventory levels in its distribution network previously highlighted in the disclosure in September 2019.
