Uganda exported 395,097.60 kg bags of coffee in January, according to a report cited by Reuters.
This is slightly lower than the 401,930 bags shipped in the same month last year.
State-run regulator, the Uganda Coffee Development Authority which released the report did not give a reason for the slight decline.
The East African nation is Africa’s leading exporter of the beans. Earnings from the crop are one of Uganda’s biggest sources of foreign exchange.@IgnatiusAnnor
