LONDON (Reuters) - Unilever (ULVR.L)(UNc.AS) reported better than expected sales for the first quarter on Thursday, showing improvement from the hammering it took last year from weak emerging markets including a slowdown in China.
The Anglo-Dutch maker of Dove soap, Lipton tea and Ben & Jerry's ice cream, said underlying sales rose 2.8 percent in the quarter, excluding the impact of currency moves, acquisitions and disposals.
