Jumia Food, an online food distribution platform, has announced a reduction in delivery fees across Kampala

From this month, all orders placed on the platform will be delivered to all locations across Kampala, Entebbe and Jinja at a fee of 2,000 UGX.

“With these new delivery charges, we help our customers save even more money when ordering on our platform, in addition to the affordable prices available on food and essential items.” Ron Kawamara, CEO of Jumia, said.

More than 100 restaurants are registered on the online platform, which includes pharmacies, supermarkets such as Carrefour & Shoprite, local markets for new products and Jumia Party where consumers can buy liquor.

The new delivery fee of 2,000 UGX is valid for all of the above.

According to the Jumia Food Index report released last year, the platform was very popular among consumers in terms of food and local cuisine, with a variety of foods ranging from fast food to less than 5,000 UGX.

It allows consumers to pay prepaid for their orders and deliver without direct physical contact or cash transfer with the delivery agent.
