Uganda: Fruit cannery drives demand (The Monitor)

Fruit farmers in the Masaka district of Uganda should enjoy higher demand for their crops as a local juice processor plans to expand its production.

Creps is a company that makes juice from pineapple, passion fruit, banana, and lemons. It began by processing juice solely for local consumption. But Creps recently underwent an expansion in order to reach a much larger market, including the capital city of Kampala.

The company now employs 20 people and says it can now produce 1000 crates of bottled juice per month.
