For more than 15 years, Uganda Development Trust has provided technical assistance and business development services to coffee cooperatives throughout Uganda. Exporting certified specialty organic coffee to international buyers who prefer organic products is one of the main goals we stress.
Support was given to Mount Elgon Coffee and Honey Cooperative Society Limited in order for them to receive training and organic certification. They are exporting through the Beyco market linkages platform.
Farmers are thrilled that their coffee is superior quality and fetching top money because the income per kilogram of coffee has doubled.
