Description: The aim of this project is to develop a vibrant and sustainable cocoa value chain in Bundibugyo district. It is a partnership between the Government of Uganda and the European Union through MARKUP initiative focused at addressing obstacles and challenges experienced in the cocoa value chain in relation to reduced production and productivity, harvest and post-harvest losses, market access and diversification into higher export markets for smallholders. The project will enhance market access to EU and other Africa Caribbean and Pacific countries by supporting private operators in the cocoa value chains to improve quality and quantity of the produce and retain premium prices for the same through niche export markets.
