About Godrej Kenya
Godrej Consumer Products entered into a partnership with Darling Group Holdings, a leading pan-African hair care company, and acquired a 51% stake in the business. Darling, which has operations in 14 countries across Africa, is a market leader in hair extension products; a category which it has pioneered in the continent.
The Darling business was founded in 1979 by Saadallah Khalil and his uncle, Ali Hoballah. They started by trading in basic synthetic fibres used for braiding in Senegal in West Africa. Over the years, they expanded the brand and business to other countries in West Africa like Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana and Cameroon. Very early, they established a partnership with Kaneka Corporation of Japan to introduce high quality fibres that could be used to manufacture a full array of hair extension products. Each of these countries saw a business being built from scratch, covering manufacturing, distribution and marketing. By the early 2000s, Darling became the market leader in hair extension products in Africa, with a comprehensive presence across West, East and South Africa. The Darling brand today stands for beauty and is an enabler for every African woman to transform the way she looks.
