We at Bushbucks Coffee work closely in cohesion with Slow Food Uganda.
The presidia in Uganda sustain quality production at risk of extinction, protect unique regions and ecosystems, recover traditional processing methods, safeguard native breeds and local plant varieties.
The Presidium, launched in February 2018 during the annual Slow Food Uganda Coffee Festival, involves 40 producers organized in the Miale-Tubana Mixed Farmers’ Cooperative Group (Miale Tubana means “the Miale villagers come together” in the Luganda language). The project’s objectives are to safeguard and add value to the Nyasaland variety; to improve the quality of the coffee.

We need to identify new ways of bringing people together, simpler and more streamlined, that will make it possible to intercept everyone who is interpreting the good, clean and fair philosophy in their own way. The Slow Food communities are one response to these challenges. Do you belong to any Slow Food Community? Share with us. ... See MoreSee Less
