Government is soon coming up with a law on vanilla growing.
This has been revealed by the minister for agriculture, animal industry and fisheries Vincent Ssempija during a media briefing at the ministry’s headquarters in Entebbe.
The minister says this has been promoted by growing theft and sale of premature vanilla which has compromised the country’s vanilla quality
He says the law in offing is therefore to regulate and streamline the vanilla sector so that the country gains more from the vanilla exports.
The country currently exports 50MT of vanilla a year fetching 5.5M $ .
