LONDON — Net profit at Unilever, parent of brands including Dove, Vaseline and Lux, rose 1.3 percent to 2.4 billion euros, or $3.1 billion, in the first half against a background of what the company called "deteriorating global economic conditions."
Unilever said revenues in the six months to June 30 climbed 11.5 percent to 25.4 billion euros, or $33 billion. Core operating margin remained flat, due partly to increased advertising and promotions.
