Other Tea Processing Factories

Tea Factories in Kyenjojo and Kanungu Districts
Following the intensified distribution of tea seedlings in Kyenjojo and Kanungu districts under NAADS and Operation Wealth Creation, the volumes of green leaf are expected to grow yet the existing tea processing factories in the districts will not be able handle processing such increased volumes. UDC has thus intervened in a bid to curb anticipated post harvest losses to the farmers by increasing the processing capacity of the two existing factories in Kyenjojo (Mabaale) and Kanungu (Kayonza) Districts by providing Tea Processing CTC Equipment with operational capacity of 600kg/hr, as third processing lines which will enable the factories handle the increasing volumes of green leaf. The equipment will be leased to the said factories under an Equipment Lease Financing Agreement entered into by the factories and UDC. The procurement process for the 3rd processing line equipments is in advanced stages. The supply, installation and commissioning of the processing lines is expected to be completed in the the financial year 2017/2018.

Tea factory in Zombo and Nebbi Districts
Tea growing in the Districts started in 2013 with the encouragement of Government through the NAADS and Operation Wealth Creation. Available statistics indicate that over 16,134,722 tea seedlings have been successfully supplied to farmers in the region. Despite this potential, there is not a single CTC tea processing factory that is located in the region. Government through UDC is to set up a tea processing factory in the region. The intended partnership shall involve the tea out growers and will include the provision of a turnkey tea processing plant under Lease Finance Model of Public Private Partnership.
