Product availability queries
A common question is ‘where do I find my my favorite Hellmann's product?’. Luckily, you can help the customer find what they’re looking for.
The Hellmann's website has a handy tool where you can choose a store to purchase directly. The link is www.hellmanns.com/us/en/store-locator.html and will allow you to buy directly or locate stores with availability near you. Always try to do the search for the customer and be extra helpful.
We can also advise the customer to speak with their store manager and ask them to order it in.
If someone is looking for their favorite product but it’s no longer on the website; its likely it has been discontinued. You can confirm that Hellmann's does not hold any extra products to sell or any further information regarding future availability.
As Ambassadors for Hellmann's, we can only answer queries about products within the U.S and so we can't say where exactly to buy outside of the U.S.
If you want to recommend a Hellmann’s product, be sure to refer them to the product page so they can read a little bit more about the product. The link is www.hellmanns.com/us/en/products.html
Sometimes customers will get in contact asking for free samples or vouchers to try the brand’s products.
Hellmann's only produces samples and coupons of products for specific marketing activities. It is best to advise customers to follow the brand on social media so they will be notified of when samples will be made available!
Donations and sponsorship requests
When people ask the brand to sponsor their charity or get involved with an organization, you need to use the sponsorship or charity request template in the Knowledge Library in the app.This explains Unilever’s ‘Bright Future Plan’ which sets out to help a billion people improve their health and well-being by 2020 and to enhance the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people. These activities do mean that unfortunately, Hellmann's is unable to support the charities and good causes that contact the brand each year.
General ingredient information
There is some generic ingredient information for certain products that you are able to answer. Please refer to the Knowledge Library in the app.
100% cage-free eggs – We make a lot of mayo each year, which means that we use a lot of eggs. Our commitment to cage-free makes a huge difference to the quality of literally millions of hens. So, we’re proud to say that we reached our goal of using 100% cage-free eggs 3 years early.
Responsibly sourced oils – How we pick our farms starts with how they pick their crops. We’re doing everything we can to ensure that the farms who supply our oils are dedicated to responsible farming practices that preserve and protect their land for future generations.
Blue ribbon farms - We’re on a mission to make our responsibly sourced ingredients the Blue Ribbon standard for the industry, and we can’t do this without our farmers. Our incredible Blue Ribbon farm families proudly supply Hellmann’s with responsibly sourced soybean oil.

It is designed so that customers can easily have access to a wide variety of information but can hone in on a question they have on an ingredient or product in just one or two clicks.
