LONDON - British consumer goods group Unilever on Thursday logged rising annual net profit despite soaring costs as inflation bites.

Profit after tax rose 8.4 percent to 6.0 billion euros ($6.9 billion) last year compared with 5.6 billion euros in 2020, Unilever said in a statement but warned of "very high input cost inflation" this year.
