We are pleased to announce that Vallis has recently started a new operation in Kigali, Rwanda, for sugar.
Vallis Commodities has handled more than 2.3 million tonnes of sugar since our first operation with the commodity in 2006. We have conducted major sugar operations in many countries across Africa and the Middle East.
Sugar is one of the most important commodities for the economy of Rwanda and demand for it is rising rapidly. The population of 11.8 million in Rwanda is predicted to double by 2050. In addition, Rwanda has been experiencing an average annual GDP growth of 6.8% since 2001. These 2 factors combine to ensure Rwanda’s reliance on sugar imports from Uganda and Tanzania will continue for the foreseeable future.
A gallery of photos from our sugar operations in Rwanda is below.
Please get in touch if you would like more information on this or any of the services that Vallis provides.
