“These affordable VALYOU packs will enable every average sized Kenyan family to be fed for a period of a week while allowing them to save a little, particularly during these tough economic times, occasioned by the Corona virus pandemic,” explained Capwell Industries Chief Executive Officer – Rajan Shah.
Adding, “Corporate should also take advantage of this amazing offer and spread some goodwill to their employees many who are suffering from the current economic hardships.”
Meanwhile, talking about the impact of the ongoing economic slowdown, Shah said that factors such as liquidity crunch in both the general and modern trade has adversely impacted the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry. “We are seeing consumers opting for smaller packs and cutting down on frequency of purchases. Growth in the first quarter has also been impacted significantly due to business uncertainty around corona virus, but we expect to rebound in the coming quarter,” he added.
