KAMPALA – Ugandan farmers have been advised to take advantage of food insecurity to capture the market for their products.

Currently, the country is facing hunger in some parts of the country yet in other areas food is in surplus. 

Martha Byanyima, Chief of Party in the United States Department of Agriculture said they have embarked on training stakeholders at different levels in the food chain to fight food insecurity.

Byanyima said they would like food standards to be maintained right from the grassroots up to exporters levels.

Byanyima made the remarks during the open of a four-day training for dealers in beef, horticulture, fish, and juice at Imperial Royale in Kampala on Wednesday (July 13, 2022).

“Currently, we need to sort out problems in the sector before we export our products. We should be able to manage this problem before we compete on market,” Byanyima said.

Rose Ademun (C) Commissioner animal health in the agriculture ministry, Doris Kiconco, trade advisor at Land O'Lakes Venture 37 and Fred Bwiino, the agriculture state minister.

“All companies operating in Uganda should be compliant with the setup standards to have safe products on market,” she added.

She alluded that many times people talk of food poisoning but in Uganda, it is difficult to detect at what level it happened likely in foreign countries.  

Rose Ademun, the Commissioner Animal Health said the promotion of food security should be for all and more so imported products.
