Jumia, the leading e-commerce platform in Africa has today announced a major partnership with Reckitt Benckiser, the global health products manufacturer to help consumers access hygienic products at the lowest price.

The partnership will provide a steady supply of hygiene products such as soap bars,

disinfectants, and liquid hand wash at affordable pricing. These products are facing

growing demand from consumers taking hygiene precautions to prevent the spread of the

COVID-19. Jumia will be taking 0% commission on Dettol, JIK and Harpic, and will reinvest

the initial commission into discounts on the consumer price.

Reckitt Benckiser.

“At Jumia, our primary concern is the health and well-being of our teammates, consumers,

partners and communities. We strive to continue operating so that customers continue to

use ecommerce as a safe way to shop in this challenging time. We are proud to work

closely with Reckitt Benckiser through the “Stay Safe” campaign, which shares consistent

information about COVID-19 and provides access to key hygiene products at the most

affordable price possible for our consumers !” Romain Christodoulou, SVP Jumia Group

The partnership will also provide critical information around COVID-19. Reckitt Benckiser

has created the Mythbusterwebsite to help update consumers on risks and best practices to

avoid the virus from spreading. Jumia is creating several awareness campaigns which

direct consumers to both the ‘Stay Safe’ page and the ‘Mythbuster’ website.

Reckitt Benckiser is delighted to partner with Jumia to ensure that access to the highest

quality hygiene and health products is a right, not a privilege. By financing nationwide free
