Dealers in brewed products want Government to eliminate the 20% excise duty tax on raw materials in the next financial year.

The outgoing Managing Director of Uganda Breweries Limited Nyimpini Mabunda says they have been forced to increase the prices of the products yet customers have less to spend.

This has also seen farmers hike the prices of grains as economic growth remained unstable for most half of 2015/16 financial year.

Government recently proposed the tax to discourage the public from excessive drinking.
