Cocoa Factory Project in Bundibugyo District

UDC is working on establishing a Cocoa factory in Budibugyo District.

The Cocoa factory will provide a ready market to the Cocoa farmers in Bundibugyo, solve the post-harvest losses during the bumper harvest, promote value addition and to create more employment opportunities. 

UDC undertook a field visit of Cocoa value chain affiliated stakeholders and facilities in Bundibugyo District in late May 2016. A project profile that would be used as basis for future stakeholders’ engagements and studies was developed.
