Uganda poised to become the largest dairy exporter in Africa:

SNV's Rinus shares his thoughts on why dairy may soon replace coffee and tea as the lead export in Uganda.

The dairy sector is slowly inching its way into Uganda’s top exports, next to coffee and tea. The pull of the exporters is largely responsible for this transformation. In the last 10 years, the value of milk and milk products exported from Uganda has increased astronomically from $5 million USD in 2008 to 130 million USD in 2017. Dairy exports in 2017 amounted to approximately 300 million litres, which is more than 10% of the total milk produced in Uganda; currently estimated at 2.5 billion litres per annum.

The dairy sector is currently growing at an average of 7% per annum, with some areas in South Western Uganda averaging at 10 – 15% per year. The growth in the sector can be attributed to favourable natural conditions as well as dairy development programmes instituted by government and development partners.

Ethiopia Held Third International Coffee Conference

Ethiopian Coffee Exporters Association (ECEA) held its third international conference On Thursday November 6, 2014.

50 international participants attended the conference, more than ECEA expected.  Hussein Agraw, ECEA Board Chairman, asserted that it reflects the growing popularity of the conference and increased demand for Ethiopian coffee.

Director of the International Coffee Organization, Roberio Oliviera Silva, said Africa’s share in global coffee exports have continued to decrease. Africa’s share in the 1990 world market was 20pc of the total world’s coffee. This has fallen to 11-12pc.
