Uganda coffee exports fall in March , Harvest Tailing off


Uganda exported a below-target 187,595 60-kg bags of coffee in March compared with 223,099 bags a year earlier as the harvest drew to an end, a source at the state-run Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) said on Thursday.

"We had anticipated this decline. The main reason is that the major harvest in east and central regions is tailing off so yields are low," the industry source said.

In mid-March, the UCDA forecast exports for the month would fall to around 200,000 bags.

Coffee is one of Uganda's main sources of hard currency. Uganda's central and eastern regions account for 55 percent of all Uganda's annual coffee output.

Uganda Coffee prices, quoted today by the authority, are in U.S. cents a pound, based on free-on-board rail/truck from Kampala:
