Soap-making in the Kuntze family is an old tradition. Already in 1814 during the Holy Roman Empire, the Kuntzes started with the art of soap-making. In the 1960s Mr. Dieter Kuntze travelled to Egypt, Uganda and finally settled in Burundi where he established “Savon d’or” in 1970. After his retirement in 1996, his son, the current Chairman Mr Matthias Kuntze took over.
Since then, even with the multiple challenges Burundi has known, Savonor has kept a steady growth and is now a fully integrated company; from palm oil plantations, palm oil refining to soap and edible oil production and distribution. Savonor is by now the largest soap and edible oil producer in Burundi, one of the largest private companies in Burundi with 1500 dedicated employees, and a strong presence in Rwanda, Eastern Congo and Western Tanzania. Savonor offers more than 35 products! This was made possible among other by Savonor constant innovation and winning customer’s trust through its high quality products.
