A new Agro-Industrial park has been launched in Kabarole district.

The Park located in Kyembogo village, in Busoro Sub County will sit on a 100-acre piece of land which has already been demarcated.

Kabarole district chairperson Richard Rwabuhinga said the park is aimed at having industries that can add value to agricultural produce in the district.

Rwabuhinga says that although the district is among the leading producers of tea, among other crops, farmers have not been benefiting from it because they export it raw. He is optimistic that the park will provide a market for the agricultural produce and improve farmer's earnings.
