THE WHAT? Unilever International has teamed up with taxi service Uber to provide hygiene kits for drivers and couriers in the UK.
THE DETAILS Part of a new partnership between the ride-hailing and delivery platform and the Anglo-Dutch FMCG giant, the project is set to be rolled out to further countries across Europe, the Middle East and Africa in due course.
“As some countries around the world look to slowly ease out of lockdown, safe transportation will play a crucial role as we move into a new normal,” Alan Jope, CEO, Unilever, commented. “As people venture out, we must collectively ensure that health and safety remains the absolute priority. We’re pleased that by partnering with Uber and providing our trusted hygiene products, Unilever is able to keep drivers, couriers and riders as safe as possible.
THE WHY? The kits are one of a number of safety measures being rolled out by Uber aimed at keeping drivers and passengers safe.
