The Coffee exports in Uganda dropped by over 30% by the close of April 2013.

The Coffee exports in Uganda slid to nearly 30% availing to 141,220 60-kg bags in April compared to the same month last year. It is more probable that this was caused by farmers' reluctance to sell their coffee after the international prices fell, the industry regulator said on Wednesday.” In comparison, a kilo of Arabica dry cherries was going for around UGX 10,000 (USD 5) in mid-March but as of now, it’s down to about UGX 7000 (USD 3)," said an official at the Uganda Coffee Development Authority.
