Uganda: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UG2024-0001
FAS/Nairobi forecasts Uganda’s coffee production in the Marketing Year (MY) 2024/25 to reach 6.9 million bags (60 kg), an increase of 40,000 bags from the previous year, due to adoption of good agricultural practices, targeted interventions to combat pest and disease outbreaks, and maturation of new high-yielding seedlings planted in recent years. MY 2024/25 consumption is anticipated to rise by 1.2 percent to reach 330,000 bags (60 kg) largely due to the proliferation of coffee outlets in Kampala city and other urban areas. MY 2024/25 exports are expected to slightly increase from 6.52 million to 6.58 million bags because of increased domestic supply.
