Who We Are

TUNADO is the apex body recognized by the public and government of Uganda to coordinate the apiculture sector in Uganda. TUNADO is a membership body that unites producers (beekeepers), processors, packers, service providers (trainers, researches, marketers, and equipment manufacturers), development partners, government and all other stakeholders towards apiculture development in Uganda.
