Uganda Fish Processors & Exporters Association (UFPEA), a non-profit organization based in Uganda that brings together all industrial fish processors in the country. Our core business is processing, value addition, and export of fish and fishery products to different destinations, including the European Union, the Middle East, Singapore, China, Japan, the USA, COMESA, and the regional market.

UFPEA is the umbrella association of all fish processors and exporters in Uganda and the current secretariat for East Africa Industrial Fishing and Fish Processors (EAIFFPA) advocates for policies supporting the fish sub-sector. Our membership currently consists of 09 fish processing firms located in Jinja, Rakai, Kampala, and Entebbe, and we employ approximately 32,000 workers, over 90% of whom are citizens. The fish industry benefits over 5 million Ugandans who derive income from their livelihoods, and we export over 29,000 metric tonnes of fish products annually, generating an average export revenue in excess of USD 116 million per year.
