EU-EAC MARKUP Boosting the Cocoa Sector
Uganda is the biggest exporter of cocoa in East Africa. Uganda’s cocoa exports have been increasing steadily over the last twenty years, demonstrating that there is a great growth potential thanks to growing international demand. Therefore, Uganda selected cocoa as one of the priority products under EU-EAC MARKUP. MARKUP supports Ugandan institutions, organisations and SMEs to increase exports to the East African region and European markets through harmonised standards and improved knowledge about the required procedures.
