Resilient partnerships 

The successful launch of the Unilever Ice Cream Project earlier this year marks the expansion of our enduring partnership with Unilever. Linfox is responsible for the operation of Unilever’s back-of-factory warehouse, the main DC operations and the management of cold chain transportation.

With a collaboration spanning more than 25 years, it highlights the profound depth of our partnership. Linfox remains a vital partner with Unilever in Australia, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. This resilient partnership, built on trust and operational excellence, continues to play a fundamental role in our ongoing success.

Fostering inclusive leadership

LIG remains dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. The introduction of the Women’s Leadership Identity Development Program, “The Journey of Owning Your Steel,” aims to empower women in leadership positions within the Linfox International Group. This initiative aligns with our gender diversity strategy and reinforces our commitment to celebrating diversity and inclusion. 

Our recent engagement with distinguished representatives from Lao PDR, Cambodia, and Thailand during the 2024 ASEAN-Australia Special Summit in Melbourne highlights our commitment to regional collaboration and economic growth. We remain committed to exploring collaborative opportunities and strengthening our presence in the region.
