Office des Cultures Industrielles du Burundi
Coffee Board of Burundi
Established in 1948, the Office des Cultures Industrielles du Burundi (OCIBU) is at the top of the pyramid of the coffee subsector. It is the government’s agency charged with regulating activities in the subsector. Its remit includes formulating government policy in respect to coffee production, processing, marketing, research and training. Additionally, OCIBU organises planting programmes, distributes fertilizers and insecticides to farmers, and maintains access roads to coffee growing areas. The development of the payment schedule is also under OCIBU, as is the payment of operators in the subsector and the collection of taxes from the revenue on behalf of the government.
