NL Bioproducts Ltd.

Providing value-added fruit products
SEED Starter Team Sustainable Agriculture Kampala, Uganda

NL Bioproducts is processing indigenous, wild fruits and berries into value-added market products such as jams, marmalades, and wines. In doing so, the enterprise incentivises rural communities to sustain traditionally valuable indigenous plants in their farmlands and it helps create additional sources of income for these communities.

Consumers also benefit from what the enterprise's research shows to be the unique nutritional values of these wild, organically-grown fruits compared to other farmed products on the market. The enterprise hopes to scale up production and quality assurance of the value-added fruit and berry products from government laboratories to its own facilities.

  • Conservation of native fruit and other indigenous species in farmlands and among rural communities.
  • Health and nutritional benefits from produce that is rich in essential minerals and medicinal antioxidants.
