LONDON, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Unilever on Thursday met underlying sales expectations after raising prices at a slower rate than in recent quarters, but still failing to win back shoppers who traded down to cheaper products amid a global cost of living crisis.

The company also named Fernando Fernandez, currently president of the beauty and wellbeing business, as its new chief financial officer. (Reporting by Richa Naidu Editing by Mark Potter)
