I trace my roots back to a British soap-maker in the 1890s. Today, I am a global food and hygiene leader. I am the world's largest ice cream maker, with U.S. brands that include Ben & Jerry's and Breyers. Some of my 400 brands include Axe, Bertolli, Caress, Country Crock, Degree, Dove, Hellmann's, Klondike, Knorr, Lipton, Popsicle, Promise, Q-Tips, Skippy, Slim-Fast, Suave, Sunsilk and Vaseline. Around the world, someone chooses one of my products 160 million times a day. I raked in almost $10 billion in sales in 2007 and employ nearly 180,000 people in 100 countries. Who am I?
