Fraud or Scams in the Uganda Vanilla industry

Fraud or domestic scams in Uganda vanilla usually try to collect payment with papers, showing complicated lingo to elicit a deposit without fulfilling or sending any beans. Scammers or shady traders or flippant brands can bait with low or fake prices, alien or adulterated qualities, or occasionally false origins (Indian or Indonesian beans in place of Uganda.) Domestically however, vanilla fraud often tries to undervalue outgoing invoices and selling immature beans at the market.

If you come to Uganda to inspect your beans before you buy, whether with us or any registered licensed exporter, the customs authority is obliged to fulfill its lawful duty and peg a bank transfer to an export and phyto-certificate as well. In other words, to legally export Uganda vanilla, it must be licensed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) and enabled through tax payment tracking a combination of pegged value, pegged quantity, and fixed price inputs.

Vanilla Bean Sellers in Uganda

Buy Uganda vanilla beans in several yearly vanilla orders and payment installations, or buy mass orders of vanilla all at once in bulk. The largest buying periods for vanilla tend to be from March to June, and again from October to early January. The reason for this glut of orders biannually is due to the start and end of the cyclical vanilla export season in Uganda. That said, vanilla stock once declared in Uganda, and once stationed in warehouses abroad, is sold year-round and the market is active constantly.

Are Uganda Vanilla beans organic – Yes. Certified organic – Yes.

There are not a lot of certified organic Uganda vanilla suppliers and we have to admit that it is crucial factor in the crop husbandry, and that the industry as a whole is generally organic.  While the genuineness of MAAIF about the organic food production and blustering holds, and the certifications are mandatory for food labeling as such to the end user, the vanilla industry on the Uganda practices organic agriculture.

Being likely the most labor intensive and thoroughly organic practices of any foodstuff on earth, all Uganda vanilla is grown using organic practices generally, and certification does give surety and security, however it is effectively ornamental in practice. Uganda vanilla growers do not and cannot use pesticides or chemicals, the vanilla Planifolia species and its flavor being extremely easy to die and distort with the slightest hint of this.
