    [$$] Big Consumer Brands Like Raising Prices, but It Is Getting Harder

    The world’s biggest consumer-products makers are struggling to raise prices, as fierce competition keeps a lid on sales growth. Prices fell across P&G’s businesses, with the biggest decline at its Gillette shaving brand, which has slashed prices to fend off low-cost rivals Dollar Shave Club, owned by rival Unilever PLC, and Harry’s. Unilever, which sells Dove soap and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, said it was able to raise prices just 0.1% in the first quarter, while Nestlé SA reported price growth of 0.2%.

    P&G, Nestle, Unilever forgo price increases to move product

    ZURICH/LONDON/CHICAGO (Reuters) - Quarterly sales growth at Nestle, Procter & Gamble and Unilever was driven almost entirely by shifting more goods, in a stark illustration of how hard it is for consumer products makers to raise prices in a competitive retail environment. The result has been mounting tension, which recently erupted in a clash between Nestle and European retailers that saw some of the Swiss company's goods briefly taken off store shelves. Nestle's 2.8-percent underlying sales growth only got a 0.2 percent boost from higher prices, and Unilever's 3.4 percent growth just a 0.1 percent lift.

    Unilever confident shareholders will agree to go Dutch

    Unilever (ULVR.L)(UNc.AS) believes shareholders will support it moving its primary headquarters to the Netherlands, even though there is some reticence among investors who may be forced to sell their shares. The Anglo-Dutch consumer goods group announced last month that it had picked Rotterdam over London for its main home base after collapsing its dual-headed structure, seen as a blow to the British government a year before Brexit. "Yes, there are one or two investors who are negatively impacted, but all of the investors we've seen -- and it's a tremendous broad sweep of our investors -- support the board's decision," Chief Financial Officer Graeme Pitkethly told Reuters on Thursday, following release of Unilever's first-quarter sales figures.
