Olyset® Classic, the first World Health Organization Fully Recommended Long-Lasting Insecticidal Net, Now Available in All Leading Supermarkets in Kenya

Sumitomo Chemical today began selling  ‘Olyset Classic,’ a consumer version of its award-winning, insecticide-incorporated, long-lasting mosquito net, in leading supermarkets and other shopping channels in Kenya nationwide.

Olyset Classic combines Sumitomo Chemicals plastic and insecticide technology and expertise – the net fibres are made from hard wearing and highly durable polyethylene which contain permethrin – an extremely effective insecticide that both repels and kills mosquitoes.

Sumitomo Chemical is introducing Olyset Classic through Kenyan shopping channels such as leading supermarkets, to assure better access of high quality anti-malarial solutions to consumers in Kenya.  Olyset Classic has been designed to meet Kenyan customers needs, with both Conical and Rectangular nets being available for a wide range of bed sizes, in both white and blue colors.

Sumitomo Chemical is proud to select Kenya  as the first country in Africa where ‘Olyset Classic’ will be introduced.   Distribution of Olyset Classic will be through Surgipharm Ltd, (Nairobi) Sumitomo Chemicals’ local representative.
