Bulb World, a LED light bulb manufacturing company owned by a young entrepreneur, Ketshephaone Jacob is steadily gaining a strong foothold in the local and further afield markets, particularly on the competitive South African (SA) shelves.

The homegrown company recently secured a deal to supply Shoprite stores with LED bulbs. According to Bulb World Sales and Distribution coordinator, Keamogetse Kgomela part of the deal will include supplying about 2,300 shops across Africa.

“We can now sell our products to Shoprite, Checkers, U Save, and OK Foods and Furniture. We are currently going into each country and submitting our pricing list for each country. We are hopeful that at least by the beginning of next year, our bulbs should be in almost all of these stores,” she said.
