Amfri currently works with more than 100 contracted out growers in various districts of Uganda which are Luweero, Kamuli, Kayunga, Mpigi, Kapchorwa, Rakai, Masaka and Wakiso. These out growers contribute upto 90% of our supplies.
In addition, Amfri farms Ltd has a production department which ensures that all the farmers are trained and adhere to all standards. The organic certification is done by Amfri farms Ltd and the farmers produce are picked up by the company’s own track at their collection centers.
It is African Organic’s responsibility is to train farmers in organic farming as they are financially responsible for the certification made by the IMO. The large organic farm Kyampisi is an experimental farm where new crops and ideas are tested.We experiment and hold workshops and classes, where farmers are trained in organic farming and trained in the handling of the products so they can be exported and meet the demands of Europe.
