There has been a silent but brawling debate over Uganda’s cocoa export volumes, and the value in particular. Since July 2015, cocoa is ranked the fourth foreign exchange earner after coffee, fish, and tea. 26,412 metric tons of cocoa were exported by December 2015 fetching a total export earnings of [$72.536m] (Shs244.3b). About 25,000 hectares are covered with cocoa trees in Uganda and more than three million cocoa trees were planted from 2004/2005 to 2014/2015. The major contributors to this were the Cocoa Development Project (CDP) and the Inclusive Markets for cocoa and honey project of Swisscontact.
