Bayer East Africa Ltd. is headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya where its operations were founded back in 1968. However, it had its beginnings in Kenya in 1934, when Bayer AG, with Hansing & Co (E.A), introduced Bayer pharmaceutical products and Agfa films into the market. In the ensuing years, the company has experienced expansive business trends and the operations have since extended to the East Africa Region including Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda where we partner with Distributors, Farmer organizations, Health Care Providers and Governments to provide solutions in the various competencies.
Today, Bayer East Africa is an employer to one hundred and eighty five (185) employees working in Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania. The company has two main Divisions:
Pharmaceuticals and Consumer Health
