We’ve achieved a lot in our first six years and with over 100 years of the Shell brand in Africa we’re also proud of our heritage. Our vision is to become the most respected energy business in Africa.
Here are some highlights of our journey so far.
1st December 2011
Vivo Energy is established with Cape Verde, Senegal, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, and Tunisia the first countries to join
We expand the group with Burkina, Cote D’Ivoire and Guinea (March), Botswana and Namibia (October) and Kenya (November) joining
We complete the current group with Uganda (February) and Ghana (August) taking us up to 15 markets across Africa
We begin our Retail network expansion programme, adding over 100 service stations in the year
We launch our initiative to re-design and expand our convenience retail and food offer across our network to ensure our sites meet our customer needs and offer much more than just fuel
We invest further in our retail network, signing partnerships with international partners such as Burger King and KFC and add innovative new offers for our customers such as our first loyalty programme in Mauritius
We complete our 15th differentiated fuel launch in 3 years (bringing V-Power to Morocco and Tunisia) and sign a new agreement with Shell to secure the brand for a further 15 years
We acquire a stake in Shell & Vivo Lubricants (SVL), so that it is jointly owned by Vivo Energy (50%) and Shell (50%). SVL is the company that sources, blends and manufactures Shell Lubricants in Africa
We enter into a share transaction with Engen. Upon completion of the transaction (which is subject to regulatory approval) nine new countries and over 300 service stations will be added to Vivo Energy’s network
