The real magic of Christmas invites us to experience a higher sense of appreciation for loved ones, a sense of community, and our need to be present with each other this Christmas, above all else.
“December is the season when loved ones, families, friends, and neighbours come together to share laughter, stories and bond over meals and drinks. We want to be part of your celebration! We hope the caravan experience will enrich the festivities and sprinkle some magic to it,” remarked Arthur Akankwasa, Franchise Manager Uganda Coca-Cola East and Central Franchise “We are proud to associate with the Christmas spirit, it’s something we treasure and spread in all communities we operate.

The brand will be curating a truly magical, festive experience centred around sharing meals with an ice-cold Coca-Cola drink. to bring communities around Uganda together for festive cheer.
Isaac Sekasi, Commercial Director, Coca-Cola Beverages Uganda reminded Ugandans of the magic of family, and shared experiences. “Every day is a celebration, but this festive season we want to spread extra cheer.
Coming for a two-year lockdown where people experience different hardships, this is a reminder to celebrate the magic around us; family loved ones and happy moments. We invite you to refocus on the magic within us, it takes a different lens to see magic. Use a red lens!”

At Coca-Cola, we want to create meaningful connections with audiences this holiday season. Wishing you all a safe and happy festive season as we continue refreshing Africa every day while making our continent a better place,” he concluded.
