Fast moving consumer goods manufacturer, Unilever, has joined the ranks of multinationals leveraging the huge potential of e-commerce to create more visibility for their brands in Nigeria.

The online store houses some of the company’s fast-selling brands, such as Close-up Red Hot and Herbal lines, Knorr, Lifebuoy, Lux, Pepsodent, Sunlight, Vaseline, and Shea Moisture.

In a joint media statement released by the two companies, the Head of Key Accounts and Brand Management at Jumia Nigeria, Steve Dakayi described the development as a strategic opportunity for Jumia to increase the number of unique products listed on its platform, thereby expanding customers’ access to a wide variety of household products.

This is in line with our commitment to continuously seek innovative ways to make our products available and accessible to shoppers. Our message to consumers is that we will continue to live up to the commitment of making sustainable living commonplace through our brands and operations. Apart from our relaunched Lifebuoy soap, newly launched Pepsodent sensitive expert range and Shea Moisture, we have exciting new products planned for the year.
