Uganda Sees Coffee Exports Dropping by over 30percent in June

Uganda expects its coffee exports in June to drop 32 percent compared with the same month a year ago, amid concerns rain may disrupt bean drying, the industry regulator said on Thursday.

Uganda's coffee exports dropped to 252,548 60-Kg bags in May from 253,270 bags a year ago.

"June exports are projected at 250,000 bags as the harvesting season in Masaka (central Uganda) and South-Western regions main harvesting season is at the peak although the current rains may disrupt the drying process," Uganda Coffee Development Authority said in a report.

The east African country which primarily cultivates the Robusta variety, substantially relies on exports of the beans for its foreign exchange earnings.
