About Us

UHURU FOOD TECHNOLOGY AND SKILLING CENTRE (UFOTEC) is an Agribusiness skilling Centre focused on food and beverage product development with a target to support Uganda’s Micro, small and Medium Enterprises to improve Quality of their products through implementing Quality control and Assurance practices in their processes. We do this by conducting training programs in Good Hygienic Practices (GHPs), Good Manufacturing Practices(GMPs), Practical product development and formulation training sessions, Internal product and system Audits and inspections for food and beverage processors.

Our Major goal is to guide micro & small-scale processors to equip themselves with basic technical skills in fruit and vegetable processing, optimize their processing methods and implement quality assurance schemes and GHP (Good Hygienic Practices) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) Programmes thus building their technical capacity for improved market access and competitiveness. In general, fruit and vegetable processing offers good opportunities for micro & small-scale businesses in Uganda. This is because:

  • Raw materials are readily available (often in surplus)
  • Most equipment is reasonably affordable and
  • The products, if chosen correctly, have a good demand and can be profitable.
