Uganda: Coffee Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UG2023-0001

FAS/Nairobi forecasts Uganda’s marketing year (MY) 2023/24 coffee production will increase 4 percent to 6.85 million 60 kilogram bags due to good rainfall and the maturation of new high-yielding Robusta seedlings planted in 2019. MY 2023/24 consumption is forecast to rise to 325,000 bags from 300,000 the year before due to the spread of coffee cafes in Kampala and other urban areas. MY 2023/24 exports are anticipated to increase 4 percent year-on-year to 6.52 million bags as higher production increases exportable supplies. Post revises its previous MY 2022/23 production forecast down to 6.57 million bags due to an outbreak of Black Twig Borer and Coffee Red Blister Disease in Robusta growing areas.
