KEY BENEFITING REGIONS
8
CHALLENGES MET BY COMPANY
  • Seasonality of fruits
  • Poor quality is delivered
  • Competition with exporter creates hiking of
    market prices.
  • Specific quality and variety are still low for
    bulk processing.
  •  Machinery for refining and extraction of some
    fruits i.e. apple, banana.

9
CHALLENGES MET BY FARMERS
  • Identification of the correct varieties for
    processing
  • Lack of market information for farmers
  • Pest and diseases decrease the expected yield
  • Farmers still have a challenge to form supply
    groups which can handle industrial production
  • Lack disease free planting material for farmer to
    grow the required variety

10
BREAKTHROUGH BY BRITANIA
  • Decision of setting up an independent fruit
    processing plant.
  • Investing in a 5million dollar state of the art
    plant with all modern technologies.
  • Capacity around 5000 kg of fruit per hr
  • Fruits- mango, pineapple, passion, tomato and
    orange.
  • Good enough to produce pulp of export quality

11
BREAKTHROUGH BY BRITANIA
  • Linked with biggest net work of fruit growers
  • Scope includes to involve farmers from all over
    Uganda
  • Ensures the farmers to buy their whole crop
  • Local varieties will be preferred with technical
    modifications through agronomy inputs
  • Can cater to the regional demand of pulp to the
    importing nations

12
BREAKTHROUGH BY BRITANIA
  • Will provide the best quality fruits and pulp to
    the growing market
  • Will provide employment to about 1000 Ugandan
    people
  • About 75,000 farmers house holds will be
    benefited
  • The environmental friendly technology through
    ultramodern water treatment plant
