Small Scale Industrial Activities

There are no major manufacturing activities in the district. However, some of the citizens are engaged in other on small scale industrial activities. These activities are categorized into food processing, alcoholic beverages, manufacturing and service industries.

The major manufacturing industries are mainly in the area of metal fabrication, block making, and food processing. There are small-scale workshops with basic equipment located in some of the urban centres to produce metal products such as hand tools for farming and cassava graters.

One of the challenges facing the small scale industry is the continued application of outmoded technology and the lack capacity to produce competitive products that can compete on the international market. The other challenge is that the linkage between processing and manufacturing on one hand, and the Agriculture Sector on other is however weak and need to be activated.
