Kigezi Highland Tea Factories

UDC has partnered with the private sector in three tea factories in Kabale, Kisoro and Kanungu. UDC partnered with Kigezi Highland Tea Ltd (KHTL) in two tea factories with a 450kilogram per hour production capacity.

The partners, who were already in busi­ness, constructed the factories while UDC provided processing equipment, generators and vehicles for transpor­tation of raw materials and processed tea. Since their commissioning in August 2018, the plants have injected a monthly average of Shs240million per month in purchase of green leaf, payment of wages and utilities, and generated export revenue through sale of tea on the Mombasa auction.
