Kampala, 10th October 2023 – The Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) announces the reopening of all primary coffee factories in the Greater Mukono, Greater Luwero, and Busoga regions, effective Wednesday, 11th October 2023. These factories had been temporarily sealed to facilitate the natural ripening of coffee cherries at the farms.
Coffee traders, farmers, and processors are urged to adhere to coffee regulations. Specifically, they are required to hull well-dried coffee, harvest only ripe cherries, and implement proper post-harvest practices to ensure high-quality coffee production and comply with the Coffee law.
The collaboration and cooperation of all stakeholders is required to ensure that the quality of Ugandan coffee is sustained.
