Uganda

The Ugandan agricultural sector is an interesting investment opportunity for Dutch companies, due to the stability of the country, increased investment opportunities and improved infrastructure. Moreover, the Ugandan market can be considered as highly competitive and vibrant. It comprises of both large and small scale agricultural and processing firms (business entities). 

The Ugandese market consists of food crops (such as plantains, cassava, sweet potatoes, millet, sorghum, maize, beans, groundnuts and sesame), livestock and export crops (coffee, cotton, tea and tobacco). Some high value crops (e.g. cut flowers and certain vegetables and fresh fruits, are also being exported. The agricultural products are regulated by the weather and products comes from all the regions of the country -except Karamoja.

There is high competition in the supply market between the large scale suppliers who have warehouses, machines and the capital to finance their activities and the small scale entities that lack machines and have to acquire loans to run their business. Sometimes, the general supply many not meet demands if the rain patterns change and this causes a shortage both at the household level and at the market level. Business opportunities arise in the following sectors: cold-chain, warehousing, import, export and organic production.
