Industrial Manufacturing

Uganda’s industrial manufacturing sector is relatively small. The sector is dominated by subsidiaries of multinational corporations. The presence of subsidiaries of multi-national corporations is largely attributed to the Government of Uganda’s privatisation programme which commenced in the mid 1990’s.

This sector is currently facing some challenges that have hampered its growth. These include;

  • intermittent power supply
  • increased cost of electricity required for production
  • strong competition from imported products
  • relatively high poverty levels that directly impact on the purchasing power of the domestic market

The Government of Uganda is currently implementing both long term and short term solutions that will mitigate the impact of the challenges faced by the industry thereby triggering growth in the sector.

Our client base includes the leading entities in this sector - Nile Breweries Limited, Uganda Breweries Limited, Century Bottling Company Limited (a subsidiary of Coca Cola SABCO), Unilever Uganda Limited and Hima Cement Limited (a member of the Larfarge Group).
