VISION:  To inspire change in the matchmaking industry and work towards sustainability within the industry.

MISSION:  To create high quality and affordable matches to serve Congo whilst having a positive impact on the environment, people and local communities.

SOCALCO was established in 2008 and has grown to become a leading producer of matchsticks in Democratic Republic of Congo. SOCALCO’s commitment to improving the lives of its consumers is evidenced by the fact that it is the only brand in the whole of Africa making sulfur-free matches that are also highly waterproof. 

Currently, the brand is on an expansion path by empowering its network of resellers and retailers, whilst training and supporting young sales entrepreneurs with an aim to reach every part of DR Congo and beyond.
