Interaction and Mentoring:
1 day to interact and get mentorship/coaching from our Senior Supply chain Leaders

Employment opportunities in Unilever Supply Chain:
Winners of the competition will be fast-tracked to the Unilever Future Leaders Programme Discovery Center


UFLP Discovery Center

Potential Direct Hire Opportunity

Grand Prize

“Chain Reaction gave me a sneak peek at how supply chain, specifically manufacturing, works in Unilever. The experience was value-adding especially if you want to learn more about Unilever or supply chain in general. I got to work on real life cases and received coaching from Unilever leaders themselves. I even got to see how Knorr cubes were made! Most of all, Chain Reaction literally lead me to a chain of events that developed me into the person I am today – From winning Chain Reaction to getting fast-tracked to Business Week, and to landing an internship and becoming a Unilever Future Leader for Supply Chain!”

“My Unilever Chain Reaction experience is one for the books! Looking back, I was really anxious prior to meeting my groupmates. We were strangers from different universities, with different collegiate degrees. On top of that, the challenge was to present the most innovative engineering solutions to real life Unilever plant problems. Back then, financial aspects of engineering solutions were foreign to me. Days were spent brainstorming and merging our group’s civil and chemical engineering knowledge! Eventually we realized that the aim was not to create the most complex, innovative and robust engineering solution. It was simply to come up with the most economically feasible and environmentally sustainable solution that achieves the objective. This realization will always be my greatest take away from this competition. “

“Chain Reaction is the start of my journey in getting to know Unilever, and I was extremely grateful that it had something to do about Supply Chain, something that I knew can be a possible career path for me, yet at that time I knew nothing about it. The plant tour in Selecta was amazing because I got to learn how ice cream is made from the mixing up until packaging and transport. In Chain Reaction, I got to learn where to apply all my engineering knowledge, which can be in different fields like planning or production efficiency, and even raw materials sourcing. Most of all, I got a glimpse of their purpose, and how it can be applied to me as an engineer, and that made me want to join them in their other programs like Business Week!”
