Uganda: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UG2022-0001

FAS/Nairobi forecasts an increase in Uganda’s marketing year (MY) 2022/23 coffee production to a new record of 6.65 million bags due to favorable weather and recently established plantations coming into full production. Arabica production is anticipated to decrease by 5.2 percent to 900,000 bags due to cyclical yield variation. MY 2022/23 exports are expected to reach a new high of 6.52 million bags due to higher robusta production. Domestic coffee consumption is forecast to bounce back as the hotel, restaurant, and tourism sectors recover from the adverse effects of COVID-19 restrictions. Uganda temporarily suspended its membership at the International Coffee Organization (ICO) due to concerns over coffee classification and lack of progress in removing trade barriers.
