Uganda Ranked Africa’s Number One Coffee Exporter

According to the International Coffee Organisation Statistics, Uganda upstaged Ethiopia in 2014/2015 to become Africa’s number one coffee exporter and seventh globally. Approximately 2.24million 60kg bags were exported by Uganda in the period. In order to consolidate these gains, Uganda has also received a $1.3bn grant from USAID’s Feed the Future Initiative which seeks to improve Uganda’s coffee productivity for 20,000 smallholder farmers in 22 coffee growing districts. The project will last a maximum of two years.
