Coronet Group sponsors the Grain Council of Uganda workshop.

A workshop organized by the Grain Council of Uganda whose theme was“Improved Grain Post Harvest Handling Practices for Assured Access to Formal Markets”was held at Hotel Africana on 16th January 2014. It was opened by the Minister of Trade and Industry Hon. Mrs. Amelia Kyambadde.

Coronet Group Limited represented by the company Executive Director Mr. Christian Baine was among the ten member sponsors who attended the workshop.
In his key note presentation on how to improve post-harvest handling practices to minimize losses, Mr. Wilfred Tembo, the Council Executive Director, said Uganda produces two million metric tons of maize annually, but only 550 metric tons are properly stored resulting into 40% loss of what farmers would earn in international trade due to poor storage of produce.

He informed participants that last year, World Food Program cancelled $6m (about sh15b) worth of contracts with Ugandan grain traders because of their failure to meet the required standards.

He said that despite the availability of recommended storage facilities such as those used by cooperative unions to store coffee and cotton, there is no mechanism where owners can work with smallholder farmers to store their grain at a cost.

All participants welcomed the grain council’s resolve to sensitize farmers on the value of using storage facilities and the revival of traditional use of granaries for their harvested crops.

The workshop was closed by Mrs. Anne Babinaga Head of Investment Unit, Office of the President.

One Response to Coronet Group sponsors the Grain Council of Uganda workshop.

  1. Good day Sir,

    We are a new processing company based at Kibaale Town, Kibaale District, with machinery installed to dry, bag and mill maize grain. We are interested to participate as fully subscribed members of the Uganda Grain Council.

    We have unsuccessfully tried to reach the Council using their registered contact details.

    We would, therefore, be pleased with support to enable us get in contact with the Council.

    Respectfully,

    Aliyo Michael
