Saro came into existence in 1991 as a result of preparedness meeting opportunity. The chaotic Nigerian economic environment of the eighties and nineties offered tremendous opportunities for indigenous and smart businesses to enter and grow into spaces being vacated by multinationals who were finding the environment increasingly unprofitable to compete in. In 1991 the company, then known as Saro Pharma & Chemical Co. Limited, marketed two popular products used in protecting the cocoa crop from fungal and insect pests.
