Social Impact and Responsibility
Our project is the largest among agro-projects in the country in recent years. The value of total investment is expected to be US$ 150m in eight years. We started the project in 2004 and so far we have invested about 70 million dollars (about Shs 126 bn) and the investment would have been much more by now, had we received all the land as stated in our agreement with the Government of Uganda.
There has been a delay to provide the required land. So far we have received 6,500 hectares only, against a total area of 26,500 hectares to be provided. Out of the land received 1,500-2,000 hectares have to be left on the shoreline.
