Uganda revises 2010/2011 coffee exports up by 5 pct

Monday, 8th August, 2011

KAMPALA-Uganda lifted its coffee export forecast to 2.8 million 60kg bags for 2010/2011 on expectations for good harvests, just months after scaling down its estimate owing to a drought.

Exports of the beans rose in July compared with the same month last year after good harvests in the southwestern part of the country, the Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) said on Friday.

“The crop from southwestern Uganda has been excellent, and we evaluated the forecast that we gave in April again. “We now think we will be able to export about 2.8 million bags this year,” said David Kiwanuka, a spokesman for UCDA.

The UCDA had in April cut the forecast to 2.67 million 60kg bags for October 2010 -September 2011 from a previous estimate of 3.1 million bags, citing the drought ravaging parts of the east and Horn of Africa region.

Uganda exported 375,843 60kg bags of coffee in July, up from 266,245 bags in the same month last year.
