Uchumi is the trendsetter in low priced consumer goods which is important to the customer, while at the same time maintaining high standard quality for goods and service  
Retail Regulation
The GOK should put in place a regulatory framework for the retail industry. This is to avoid adverse effect as seen in the case of Nakumatt where a significant number of jobs were lost. The ripple effect of the downfall of players in the sector is substantial. It affects creditors and banks alike and subsequently the economy hence should be controlled 
Household brand
Uchumi is a household name and brand. It translates to “economy” in English. It a very common word used widely by Kenyans and will always be synonymous with the industry experience. We cannot afford to lose this national brand just by virtue of assuming that the retail market is stable   
Buy Kenyan
USP is a veteran in the ‘Buy Kenya Build Kenya’ initiative which is why it is important to keep it in operation. The current influx of foreign companies in the retail market is wanting because there is a missed opportunity for the promotion of local manufacturers  
Big4 Agenda

USP is looking towards playing a critical role towards the realization of the Big 4 Agenda and the  wider Vision 2030

On March 2, 2020 Uchumi creditors voted to spare the lender from imminent dissolution by backing the firm’s proposed company voluntary agreement (CVA).

The positive vote will see the creditors agree in part to debt forgiveness and sees banks write off half of their accruing arrears while suppliers are set to discount 30 percent of their pending repayments.
