The Coca-Cola System, comprising Coca-Cola Nigeria and Nigerian Bottling Company Limited
(NBC), has today announced partnerships with leading e-commerce platform Jumia to provide
access for consumers to shop for Coca-Cola beverage brands online as opposed to going to
stores.

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.

The partnership, which will see consumers enjoy free shipping on selected items, also
extends to supermarkets including Game, which currently has an electronic order system. Consumers will also enjoy price discounts on selected products.

These initiatives showcase the organisation’s commitment to consumer protection in the face
of the pandemic, as well as an avenue to encourage its consumers to practice social
distancing and making purchase of consumables more convenient, affordable and safe.

Speaking on the partnership, Franchise Commercial Manager, Coca-Cola Nigeria Limited,
Phoebe Larry-Izamoje said.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has altered almost everything with regards to human interactions in
the world. Considering the need for social distancing brought about by this pandemic, Coca-
Cola, in its bid to help consumers have greater access to its products at less or no risk to
lives, decided to partner Ecommerce platforms to make its products easily accessible, bearing
the cost of delivery and offering a discount to our consumers. This is just one of our little ways
of helping people cope during these difficult times.”

Public Affairs and Communications Director for NBC, Ekuma Eze, said: “As a system, we are
committed to efforts that promote the health and wellbeing of our communities. We will
continue to explore innovative ways to help people to surmount the challenges posed by this
pandemic. We believe that in addition to people’s critical need to remain hydrated throughout this period, there is also a greater need to ensure they are safe doing so.

That is rationale
behind this partnership.” “We are proud to partner with Coca-Cola Nigeria Limited as part of our commitment to
provide customers access to essential products during this challenging time. This partnership
is in line with our “Stay Safe” campaign. We strive to continue operating so that customers
continue to stay at home, use e-commerce to shop, and stay safe during the
lockdown,”said Kolawole Osinowo, Head, Key Account Management at Jumia
Nigeria.

This partnership between the Coca-Cola System and Jumia Nigeria offers consumers free
shipping on selected items on Jumia platforms. This initiative by the Coca-Cola System will
also extend to other e-commerce websites in due course and to other markets where Jumia
operates including Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, South Africa and Uganda. For more information, click here. https://www.jumia.com.ng/stay-home- essentials/?source=NG_W13_S_StayHomeEss/?utm_medium=partnership&utm_source=Coca- cola&utm_campaign=PR
