The Embassy of Uganda in Moscow, in collaboration with the Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA), will showcase coffee at the Coffee and Tea Expo.
The expo will take place from March 15 to 17 in Moscow, Russia.
Coffee is the number one export earner for Uganda, fetching $450m (sh1.6 trillion) per year.
Uganda produces a lot of coffee, but consumes only one million bags a year and the rest is exported.
UCDA is one of the major exhibitors at the Expo and will be represented by two officials.
Samson Mpiira Akankiza, the coffee sustainability manager and CORE project co-ordinator at UCDA, will participate in the event and will expose the participants to the “black gold of Uganda”.
