Uganda May coffee exports up 22% - UCDA

KAMPALA, June 15 (Reuters) -Uganda's coffee exports in May surged 22% from the same month last year, boosted by a bumper harvest from one of the major producing regions, according to the state-run sector regulator.

Uganda is Africa's biggest exporter of the crop and earnings from the beans are a major source of foreign exchange.

The country shipped a total of 553,529 60-kilogram bags in May, the Uganda Coffee Development Authority (UCDA) said in a report seen by Reuters on Saturday.

The surge in shipments was partly due to a bountiful harvest in the Masaka area in central Uganda, the UCDA said.

Uganda earned slightly over a billion dollars from coffee shipments in the 12 months to May, it added, compared to $839 million in the year to May 2023.
