Dove soap and Flora maker Unilever boosted confidence in its prospects by revealing a rebound in emerging markets.

The Anglo-Dutch company’s shares opened more than three per cent higher after underlying sales growth of 4.1 per cent for the final three months of the year came in slightly better than City expectations. It represented an improvement on the 3.2 per cent rise of the previous quarter, which was Unilever’s weakest performance in four years.
