Coffee Exports Not Affected By Covid-19 Lockdown – UCDA
Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) said in a March 2020 report that Uganda coffee exports were 477,561 worth USD45.87M (Shs 171bn). This is higher than the 472,994 bags of coffee exported in February.
However, while in March there was more coffee exported, it fetched less money compared to February 2020 where the country earned USD 46.73m (Shs 175bn).
This means the prices of the cash crop had started falling as more coffee shops shut around the globe with countries scampering to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
