About Us

Mcleod Russel is the largest tea producer in Uganda. A favourable climate and soil have produced the ideal growing conditions for tea plantations in Uganda to produce some of the world’s best tea.

We annually produce 21 million kgs of tea from our six estates situated in south western Uganda — approximately 29% of Uganda's total tea production.
