Government of Uganda (GOU), through the guidance of His Excellency, The President, has prioritized coffee, tea and citrus fruits as major strategic commodity enterprises for emphasis in the drive to move the country to middle income status by the year 2020. In this respect, Government desires to accelerate coffee production from the current 3.5 million 60-kg bags to 20 million 60-kg bags by 2020.
In support of the above goal, the coffee Sub-sector is expected to plant 300 million coffee seedlings per year for the next three years (FY 2016/17 to FY 2018/19). This drive is being spearheaded by Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) in collaboration with Operation Wealth Creation (OWC), Local Governments (LGs) and the Prime Minister’s Delivery Unit (PMDU).
