BOSTON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Florida's top pension investment officer said on Tuesday he expects the state will restrict purchases of Unilever PLC in October after the company's Ben & Jerry's brand halted sales in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Ash Williams, chief investment officer of the Florida State Board of Administration, which oversees pension assets, said at a webcast state hearing that "we've not seen any meaningful response from Unilever" after discussions with the company. (Reporting by Ross Kerber; Editing by Will Dunham)
