Adding Value to Aquaculture Products: Kati Farms (Uganda) Ltd.

Kati Farms (U) Ltd is a fish agro-processing enterprise led by Lovin Kobusingye, a young entrepreneur linking Ugandan fish farmers with markets. Because fish farmers were having trouble finding marketing outlets for fresh farmed fish, Lovin started adding value to fish. Her breakthrough came when she thought of making sausages from fish. Lovin went through the process of developing her and her suppliers’ capacities and finding markets for her innovative products with the support of Ugandan government institutions. Kati Farms and her fish suppliers now reliably deliver processed fish products to 30 local supermarkets and 23 hotels, in addition to many low-income consumers through street vendors.
