SUMMARY

Photos of the expired juice in Kariobangi went viral, with many netizens concerned that they dumped products might be repackaged for re-sell.

Most Kenyans on social media even called out the manufacturer for being insensitive for dumping food products in such a manner.

Kevian Kenya Limited, manufacture of Afia juice, has denied having any connections to the bottles of juice dumped at Kariobangi dumpster in Nairobi.

On Monday, February 10, the Managing Director Kimani Rugendo, cleared the air saying that the expired juice under the name Afya are cheap import products.

In the statement, Rugendo said clarified that the dumped products were branded a name almost identical to theirs.


“Those are not our products at all. We have no connection with them. Those are cheap imports trying to ride on our good name and using a name almost identical to ours. No distributor would dump such a consignment and risk losing money. They would return it to us for proper disposal and compensation,” read part of the statement by Rugendo.

He asked regulatory authorities to take action and look out for traders dealing in such businesses.

“Our products are of high quality and move fast. It is clear whoever dumped the juices had imported them and had no idea how to dispose them. I call upon all regulatory authorities to be on the lookout for such unscrupulous traders and take action,” said Rugendo.
