After years of preparation, more about Uganda’s top rated entrepreneur and author Andrew Rugasira has unleashed a new brand of chocolate on the local market.

Rugasira, sick the brain behind the globally prized coffee brand The Good African Coffee announced yesterday that the new Chocolate brand will be hitting the shelves sometime this week.

“Good African Chocolate is here! The journey to add value to our finest Ugandan cocoa has begun,” he announced on Monday evening.

“Good African Chocolate journey started nine years ago! No one should ever tell you that your dreams cannot come true.”


According to Rugasira, the new Chocolate brand which comes in three flavors, will be in different stores starting January 10th, although it is already available GACafe Lugogo effective today Tuesday.

The tycoon said the Good African Chocolate would be a big leap in living the gospel of adding value to Ugandan agricultural products, in this case the locally produced cocoa.

Uganda is said to have about 20,000 hectares (50,000 acres) of land under cocoa cultivation, mostly in the country’s west and centre, but its fortunes in the industry have fluctuated over time as the government has focused more on coffee.

The new brand will be the second on the local market, the first being the “Uganda” Chocolate produced by Pink Food Industries though on a smaller scale.

In Uganda, chocolate is a luxury product bought by people in the medium and upper income bracket.

The chocolate on the shelves of Kampala’s major supermarkets is usually from Switzerland, Belgium, Brazil, Malaysia and Turkey. A 100g bar normally sells for about 20,000 shillings.

With his coffee brand already making wonders on the global scene, — it is now available in more than 700 UK supermarkets and 500 stores in Africa, and online in the United States — the Good African Chocolate brand is expected to be another big thing for the famous entrepreneur.
