Where the magic happens
Welcome to Hive. Come on in and get a taste of what it’s like here. We’d love to show you around.
Have a nose around
Hive sits within the Wageningen Campus in the Netherlands, home to the internationally renowned Wageningen University & Research.
That way, Unilever, researchers, students, startups, customers and all manner of bright bees can come together and build a better future of sustainable, tasteful food.
In fact, Hive was grown to encourage as much connection as possible. Let’s explore how.
Hive’s compact design brings people together in a more eco-friendly building. You’ll be rubbing elbows with food innovators across three floors of labs and offices, a pilot plant and food and customer experience area.
Hive was built to allow a more open, revolutionary way of co-working. Together, we’re breaking down silos and ideas to co-create real innovation in food.
Hive is packed with spaces of every spec and size, to fit teams from 10 to 150 people. Here you’ll find three large studios and a whole range of meeting rooms, open co-creation spaces and professional demo kitchens to help you work on whatever nut you’re cracking.
Eat with us
We have a restaurant and bar to help you recharge - or unwind.
