His Excellence President Yoweri Museveni has lauded Mukwano Group of Companies for the huge investment in Lira which has created jobs.
The President commended Mukwano after touring AK Oils and Fats, a member of the Mukwano Group of Companies, in Lira on Thursday.

“Mukwano is now exporting cooking oil, maize flour and animal feeds to Switzerland, India and other countries. That factory alone is already earning 65m dollars per year, which is more than 200 billion shillings. They are employing more than 600 people,” Mr. Museveni said at a public rally in Lira Market.

He observed that Mukwano employs Ugandans who would have otherwise looked to Government for jobs.
Mukwano has, through a partnership, also indirectly created jobs for 72,000 rural smallholder farmers in Lango sub-region. The farmers are provided with affordable seeds, farm inputs and technical know-how.
The partnership’s resounding success is demonstrated by the 400% increase in oil seed production.

Lira, the processing home for our agricultural produce, has a complex that comprises of modern grain storage facilities, oil seed crushing and maize flour milling.
