In 1960 it was decided to grow tea in Bunyoro primarily as part of the Uganda Government's plans to diversify the country's agriculture and to shift some of its economic dependence on cotton and coffee to other crops, and secondarily to initiate some sort of major agricultural / industrial project which would provide employment in an area of Uganda which had previously received little in the way of development stimulation. The project has taken the form of a plantation controlled by Agricultural Enterprises Ltd., a subsidary of the Uganda Development Corporation, together with production on small farms in the neighbourhood.
