Kibo portfolio company produces first fully recycled packaging product in Kenya

06 Feb 2020

Kibo Capital Partners (KCP) today announced that its portfolio company Blowplast Limited (Blowplast), in partnership with Unilever and recycling company Mr Green Africa, has produced Kenya’s first fully recycled packaging solution. The packaging, produced for Unilever’s Sunlight scouring powder, is made entirely out of locally recycled plastic. The switch eliminates the need for virgin plastic for this product and thus significantly reduces CO2 emissions.


“We have invested in and are committed to advancing the development of a circular economy. In addition to this initiative, we are working with several leading Kenyan consumer goods companies to increase the percentage of locally recycled packaging in their packaging.”, Sanjay Brahmbhatt, Blowplast’s MD, noted.
