Matooke

Cultivated under organic and sustainable agriculture practices, the fertile soils of Mukono provide farmers with repeat crops of banana throughout the year – the banana varieties vary between matooke (Nakitembe, Kibuzi and Mpologoma varieties), bogoya, ndizi and they also provide banana leaves and fibres that can be used to fabricate matting and other household products. EKiBBO can ensure that harvesting and collection processes of banana products are undertaken according to a range of standards and that farmers can use this key staple food to top up their incomes from other products.
