In a bid to remain safe and curb the spread of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government has issued a lockdown of the country’s major cities which has led to remote working, closed schools, cancelled flights and social distancing.

So far, social distancing has made shopping for home essential difficult for Nigerians. In a bid to reduce this burden, Nigeria’s major brands such as Coca-Cola and Jumia are ramping up efforts to ensure families can get their home essentials without leaving their homes.

Coca-Cola is announcing partnerships with leading e-commerce platform Jumia to provide access for consumers to shop for their essentials online and get free shipping on selected items as opposed to going to stores. This also extends to supermarkets including Game which now have e-ordering systems. Consumers will also enjoy price discounts on selected products, and because Coca-Cola cares, it has decided to alleviate the additional costs consumers might incur due to bulk purchase, by bearing the shipping cost on selected items on Jumia.

This partnership is coming on the heels of Nigeria Center for Disease Control’s (NCDC) directive for Nigerians to practice social distancing as a means to curtail the spread of the Coronavirus. It also shows the company’s way of expressing its commitment to consumer protection, as well as an avenue to encourage its consumers to practice social distancing by making online purchases of consumables, convenient and more affordable.

Nigerian Bottling Company is one of the world’s largest bottlers of drinks from The Coca‑Cola Company. It serves approximately 180 million people by producing and distributing a unique portfolio of quality brands, bringing passion to marketplace implementation and demonstrating leadership in corporate social responsibility
