Ugandan tea traders and East African Tea Trade Association (EATTA) members are pressing for a meeting with President Yoweri Museveni to address the current crisis plaguing the tea sector.

The demand comes amidst growing concerns over the challenges faced by tea traders and the need for government intervention to stabilise the industry.

The tea industry in Uganda has been grappling with a range of issues, including fluctuating market prices, inadequate infrastructure, and limited access to credit facilities.

These challenges have significantly impacted the livelihoods of tea farmers and traders, prompting demands from stakeholders to meet the fountain of honour amid the crisis.

During the anticipated meeting with President Museveni, tea traders said they want to outline their concerns and propose viable solutions to revitalize the sector.

Key issues on their agenda include improving market access, enhancing value addition, and implementing supportive policies to boost tea production and trade.

This was during an engagement organised by the East African Tea Trade Association recently at Africana Hotel in Kampala.
