A National Coffee Bill has been tabled in parliament in Uganda making a number of proposals that could affect the sector.
Law firm ENSafrica said the bill proposes an increase in the tax on export sales of coffee from 1 per cent to 2 per cent, calculated with reference to the unit value of the crop on the international market.
It also proposes compulsory registration of all coffee farmers and other industry players, including traders, exporters, processors and owners of coffee nurseries.
