Now in our fifth year since launching Meridian Tobacco Company (MTC), we are well-established in the dual activities of Global Tobacco Supply Ltd (GTS). First, we are involved in tobacco-growing in Uganda and in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In this regard, GTS has its own tobacco-growing capabilities of 10 million Kgs green leaf per year in collaboration with 15,000 small farmers in Uganda and DRC. Second, GTS processes tobacco at MTC in Arua. Our five-year experience has been rewarding, and look forward to even more productive endeavors with our stakeholders in Uganda and beyond.
