Uganda’s potential in tea production and recovery

Tea covers an area of about 21,000 ha in Uganda. This is only about 10% of the suitable fertile land for tea estimated at over 200,000 ha countrywide. The potential areas identified are in the districts of Kabarole, Bushenyi, Kanungu, Rukungiri, Mityana, Kibaale, Hoima, Kisoro, Wakiso, Mbarara, and Nebbi /Zewu.

There is therefore need to tap this yet an exploited potential.
This requires encouraging current investors to expand their investment and also new investors to join the industry.
