LONDON--Unilever PLC (>> Unilever plc) Monday downgraded its expectations for third quarter sales growth amid a accelerated slowdown in emerging markets.

The Anglo-Dutch consumer goods company, which now expects third quarter underlying sales growth to be between 3% and 3.5%, said the slowdown in emerging markets growth is due to currency weakening, and that growth in developed markets remained flat to down.

"We continue to grow ahead of our markets and expect underlying sales growth to improve in quarter four," said Chief Executive Officer Paul Polman. "For 2013 we are still on course to deliver against our priorities of profitable volume growth ahead of our markets, steady and sustainable core operating margin improvement and strong cash flow".
