Naivasha shorter route now open for Coffee Exporting

Coffee exporters now have a shorter route via the Standard Gauge Railway Depot in Naivasha. The Uganda Revenue Authority with the Uganda Coffee Development Authority encouraged coffee exporters to use this shorter and cheaper option in terms of distance, time & tracking.

It was hard before for small producers of coffee to export as they had to go through other established farms however the Naivasha route now favors the SMEs

The Revenue and Coffee Authorities engaged coffee exporters on the best way to make use with the existing enablers for coffee exports including the Electronic Single Window System which reduces the documentation process of a coffee exporter. This has now made it simple for every coffee exporter having atleast 2 tonnes of coffee to use this system to export.
