I am happy that this conference puts us on task in dealing with these bottlenecks like Post-harvest problems, land fragmentation, value addition, Pests/Parasites, bad farming practices, and most importantly the issue of markets for our produce. President Museveni

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has on Thursday 19th August 2021 officially launched the National Food System Dialogue at Kololo independence grounds.

Below are the President’s remarks:
I launched the National Food System Dialogue at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds. This is a precursor of the Global Food Summit due here next month.  

Uganda is uniquely blessed with the ability to produce food even for the whole world once we deal with a few bottlenecks. 

I am happy that this conference puts us on task in dealing with these bottlenecks like Post-harvest problems, land fragmentation, value addition, Pests/Parasites, bad farming practices, and most importantly the issue of markets for our produce.

Recently, people had a huge yield of maize and all we could consume in Uganda was 1 million tonnes. The rest was put to waste. That is why we are pushing for market integration- a single African market.
