The expansion of Bidco has been exponential and sometimes controversial . In the year 1998, they acquired Elianto unit from Unga group a firm listed in the NSE . This was actually the first major acquistion by BIDCO. In the year 201, they spread their wings to Tanzania through the creation of BIDCO oil and SOAP limited in Dar-Es-Salaam.

They later acquired Unilever leading Brands in Edible oil and Soap business in Kenya. This was in the year 2002. Bidco Uganda Limited Complex was started in 2005 in Jinja Uganda. The Jinja plant has been producing products for both the Ugandan and the international market .

Their manufacturing factories are located in Kenya Uganda and Tanzania . According to various reputable sources, BIDCO products are also marketed to 13 other African countries.
