The proprietors of Ranchers Finest Limited, have touted the shs15.5 billion modern meat processing facility in Bwaise, a Kampala suburb to create at least 3000 jobs directly and indirectly.

Taking journalists on a guided tour of the facility on Monday afternoon, Collin Muyanja, the CEO Ranchers Finest said with the growing demand for meat, the facility will come in handy in addressing this challenge.

He said currently, the facility employs over 170 staff directly.

“Ranchers Finest has invested over $4 million in this world class processing facility. With our kiosk franchisee and distribution expansion project we expect to create new employment opportunities for over 3000 youth and women in the value chain. These include distribution teams, road side and street grillers,”Muyanja said.

Muyanja explained that with the current onset of the foot and mouth diseases, such facilities like Ranchers Finest now come in to provide quality meat to Ugandans and abroad.

“It’s important to understand that FMD does not affect the safety of meat products that have undergone proper, traceability, processing, and inspection, as is always the case at Ranchers Finest. From rigorous sanitation protocols to state-of-the-art equipment, every step of our production process is carefully monitored and controlled.”

To this, he said the onset of foot and mouth disease saw a spike in demand for meat at their facility, attributing this state of affairs to the quality beef produced.
