“At Vivo Energy Uganda, we are continuously challenging ourselves to improve our quality management system to provide products that meet or exceed the needs and expectations of our customers, always complying with the specifications and regulations,” Kibaya added.
“We will carry out quality tests on fuels at randomly selected service stations and commercial business partner sites. This is in an effort to reassure our customers of our quality products.”
