    CARACAS/VALENCIA, Venezuela (Reuters) - Unilever's factory in the outskirts of the northern Venezuelan city of Valencia once bustled with activity as it produced everything from soap to toothpaste for one of South America's wealthiest economies. Now, with Venezuela struggling with a fifth year of recession and its economy wracked by hyperinflation, there are few signs of activity.
