Description:

Registered in 1949 as East Africa Industries Ltd and changing its name to Unilever Kenya Ltd. in 2000, developed to be one of the leading manufacturers of food, home and personal care products with a strong market leadership.

Feel good, look good and get more out of life!

Unilever Kenya limited, evolved during the Second World War when essential household items and other vital products became increasingly scarce. 

The Government ruling Kenya then set up a body to co-ordinate the supply of essential items. This body was called Kenya Industrial Management Board Organization (KIMBO). This was for a very long time one of the greatest brands in the country.

After the war, KIMBO was transformed into a business enterprise. East Africa Industries Limited was registered and incorporated in Kenya on 13 April 1949 following an agreement signed by the Kenya Government and the Colonial Development Corporation (now the Commonwealth Development Corporation: CDC) .

In 1953 Unilever was invited as a strategic partner to bring in it’s soap, margarine and fat technology and acquired 50% shareholding in East Africa Industries Limited. It’s brand portfolio continued to grow to include such well-known brands as BlueBand, Royco, Homecup Tea, Omo, Geisha, Close-up, Ladygay, Fair &Lovely, Sunlight among others.

In 1999 Unilever purchased the remaining shares in East Africa from ICDC and ICDC1. 25 October 2000 marked the name change from East Africa Industries to Unilever Kenya Limited.

Shortly after this purchase, Unilever announced the International Acquisition of Bestfoods Inc. In Kenya, this meant that Bestfoods Kenya Limited joined the Unilever Family, bringing with it household brands such a Haria Curry powder, Knorr soups and bouillons, Mazola Oil and Skippy Peanut Butter.

Unilever Kenya Limited now employs close to 800 employees. The company’s leading brands reach consumers through a network of over 50 000 retail outlets providing employment to over 120 000 Kenyans. Considering that Unilever Kenya limited is recognized as a major player in the economic development of the country, its contribution to the Kenya Government Revenue is huge. Our products are household names throughout the region.
