Uganda is one of Africa’s most rapidly growing organic certified lands, and has a favorable climate for growing several premium crops including soybeans, sesame, cocoa, vanilla, cotton, and bird’s eye chilli. Agri Exim identified this high potential for organic production in the country early on, and has since extended comprehensive help and support to local farmers to make organic farming their major source of livelihood. A combination of traditional farming methods and training programs on organic farming – soil preparation, harvesting and handling – have enabled farmers to meet organic standards while also increasing the quality and quantity of their produce.
