With an estimated oil demand growth of average 6.2 % p.a. driven by fast developing economies, the East and Central African region presented a ground breaking opportunity for downstream oil business.
Back in 2004, Bakri Kenya was founded as an addition to the already successful affiliates under Bakri Group with the sole vision “To be the leader in oil and gas supply for the region”. Few top brand companies existed, and competition was purely under supply and demand. Over the period, increased competition, strict price and capacity regulation has seen survival and growth of only the most efficient and most adapted.
Bakri Kenya’s vision is fulfilled, with presence in East Africa through the marketing and sale of petroleum products to Uganda, DRC, Burundi, South Sudan and Rwanda. With Globalization and the need for affordable petroleum products further inland, the company strategizes to capture a wider niche within the region like Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia.
