Becoming a Unilever supplier

Any individual, business, or organisation wanting to partner with us needs to go through our Unilever Supplier Qualification System (USQS).

The USQS is a single, global platform that gives Unilever a complete overview of our partner network and gives our partners a better understanding of how we choose to operate. It also allows us to support any partners needing help in meeting essential criteria for doing business with us, such as that outlined in our Responsible Sourcing Policy (PDF | 9MB).

Our supplier qualification system:

  • Identifies approved partners for the products and services we want to buy
  • Allows us to better understand the potential risks of buying products or services in various geographies
  • Helps us identify which partners need our help improving their standards
  • Keeps Unilever and our partners accountable when faced with changes to regulations and legislation, locally or globally


A successful registration in USQS qualifies you to partner with us.

If you are an existing supplier but you have not completed the USQS registration yet please reach out to your Unilever procurement/business contact or USQS.helpdesk1@unilever.com.
