Process coffee for specialty markets

Start a business in processing coffee in Uganda for export specialty markets.

Uganda produces about 3.5 million bags per year, of which 90% is robusta coffee and 10% Arabica. Major export markets include Europe, United Kingdom, and United States. The country's yields per hectare for robusta are approximately double those of its African competitors. All coffee is organic and some coffee producing areas have been certified as organic by Swiss company Kray Kontrol

Investment opportunities

Production for specialty markets

Production of washed robusta coffee. This presents investors with potential for higher earnings than dry-processed coffee.

Coffee roasting: Though tied to niche markets, coffee roasting can be adopted to larger markets especially with the growing demand of Ugandan coffee in China.
