It will now be available for sale in bars, supermarkets, liquor stores and online shopping platforms.

“It is for this reason that they are continuously introducing new flavours into their portfolio in response to varied consumer tastes and preferences,” said Kagema.

He added that the company is delighted to welcome Kenya Cane Pineapple to the Kenya Cane family and will continue to innovate with flavors that appeal and resonate with their consumers.

In its commitment to support the Kenyan entrepreneurial spirit, the brand is currently running a National Consumer Promotion dubbed “Shangilia Hustle Ya Kenya” which is rewarding consumers with Sh100,000 capital injection into their businesses.
