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 millions 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.
