Buy Namibian, win a Polo
Sponsored by Namib Mills, the Polo competition will be launched at this unique exhibition that brings a range of local products to Namibian consumers. The exhibition takes place on Saturday 24 November as part of the Heart Month campaign. It is organised and hosted by Radio 99FM in association with Team Namibia and Pick ‘n Pay. It also marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season at Auas Valley.
The big guns in manufacturing anchors the event which will be located in the pedestrian area in front of Pick ‘n Pay’s main entrance. Household names like Pasta Polana, Namib Poultry, the Breweries, Namibia Dairies and Windhoek Schlacterei, will entice the public with a wide selection of their products – all manufactured locally. Flying in their slipstream are the smaller manufacturers like Camelthorn Brewing, Dinapama, Elso Holdings, Just Water, K.H. + D Herzberg, Mama’s, Namibia Quality Beverages, Venture Publications, Vision 2030 Focus and Wordweaver Publishing.
Radio 99FM’s Ché Ulenga will do a live outside broadcast from Auas Valley from 08h00 to 14h00. Christine Hugo, General Manager of 99FM said “We want our listeners to share their passion for Namibia through the Heart Namibia campaign and hoping that they will draw inspiration from the exhibition and Che’s experiences to make buying local part of their daily existence.”
During the event, Pick n Pay will run exciting competitions in-store every hour, giving consumers the opportunity to win selected Team Namibia products that will be exhibited outside the store. Gilbert Botha, Retail Marketing Manager at Pick n Pay said: “At Pick ‘n Pay we feel strongly about supporting ‘Buy Namibian’ and we are pleased to give consumers the opportunity to interact with Namibian products at the exhibition and stand the chance to win exciting prizes in return.”
Lizette Foot, General Manager of Team Namibia commented: “We are thrilled about the joint campaign with 99FM and Pick ‘n Pay and want to demonstrate that UUKUMWE (collaborative campaigns) have a huge consumer impact.
