BELOW IS WALL'S REPLY
Hello from Wall's,
Thank you for your reply with the message that was causing concern, Esack.
I was able to get confirmation from my knowledge manager that it is not the policy of any Unilever brand to advise on what is and what is not suitable for Muslim consumers. You mentioned that the message was imparted through Whatsapp we would not have sent any communication via social media (unless this was how a member of the public sent it to you).
As such it appears that this is not an official Wall's, or Unilever, communication. Without any more information on the source of this letter we would not be able to investigate any further.
I thank you for bringing this matter to our attention and I wish you every success with your exciting new endeavour.
Should you require more information, please feel free to contact us by letter or email. Alternatively, you can contact our Consumer Engagement Centre on our free phone number 0800 0280173 from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. One of our advisors will be more than happy to assist you.
We hope that you carry on enjoying Wall's and thank you for your continued interest.
