Message from Our Chairman

In the year 1974, in the Coastal town of Mombasa, I founded HACO Industries and I have over the last 45 years steered the company from its humble beginnings as a single product manufacturer to a leading player in the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry in East Africa.

Our vision is to be the most preferred company with a commanding presence in every household by 2030. It is my firm belief that HACO Industries which prides itself in application of world class standards and best practice in Innovation, Manufacturing & Supply chain, Distribution & consumer marketing will deliver on this ambition.

Our Story

HACO Industries was established in the early 1970’s as single-product manufacturer. From those modest beginnings, HACO is now one of the region’s leading FMCG manufacturers, supplying a wide range of products to the entire East African and COMESA Markets.

Beginning with Stationery and Shaver Products, HACO diversified its operation into Personal and Home Care products in the mid 1990’s. Principal to this process were international partners such as Société BIC France, E.T. Browne Drug Company Inc. USA and Jeyes PLC UK.
. . .

MIADI marked the first specifically tailored product to be launched from HACO Laboratories, the company’s Research & Development division. The launch also came at the culmination of HACO’s 20 year plus involvement in the Hair Care Market, associated with leading international brands such as MOTIONS and TCB.
. . .

The portfolio now includes Personal Care Products (Amara Lotion and Petroleum Jelly, MIADI, Palmers), Homecare (So Soft Fabric Softener and Conditioner, Sparkle Dishwashing Liquid, Ace Liquid Toilet Cleaner) and Toys ( Barbie, Hot Wheels, Fisher Price, Mattel Games and Thomas & Friends).
