Vivo Energy Kenya launches lubricants anti-counterfeit platform

Vivo Energy Kenya, the company that distributes and markets Shell products and services in the country, has launched an anti-counterfeit consumer platform dubbed JAZIKA NA SHELL LUBRICANTS.

The platform will enable consumers to verify the authenticity of the Shell Lubricants they consume. Consumers will also get an opportunity to earn and accumulate points they can redeem prizes, namely airtime, shopping vouchers, KPLC tokens, and other gifts.

Vivo Energy Kenya has developed a USSD platform that enables consumers to verify if the Shell lubricants they have purchased in the market are genuine. Consumers will dial * 459* 200# and insert the code under the seal of the lubricant’s cap to register and participate.

Peter Murungi, Managing Director of Vivo Energy Kenya said, “this platform will help curb the threat of counterfeits that Shell lubricants continue to face. This supports the Buy Kenya, Build Kenya initiative since the Shell lubricants are blended at Mombasa’s Shell Vivo Lubricants blending plant. The platform assures consumers of the legitimacy of Kenya’s most loved lubricant brand. It will also reward consumers who are loyal to the Shell lubricants brands.”
