WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE TALKING ABOUT
THE MIDDLE MAN CRISIS
To get their coffee to market, many Ugandan farmers relied on middlemen, who move kilometres from the capital, Kampala, to buy coffee beans at cheap prices from smallholder farmers. These middlemen made their living by reselling the beans at much higher prices to companies in Kampala who then ship the beans to Europe and Asia. There are currently over 10,000 middlemen operating throughout Uganda with 1.8 million smallholder farms, which accounts for 99% of Ugandan coffee production, reaping minimal profits. Our parent’s coffee was being sold and drunk at exuberant prices, whilst we saw little benefits.
