Seasons Dairy in Kampala, Uganda is owned by Baker Muwonge, a cheesemaker of 14 years whose primary forte is mozzarella. Recently, he visited the US to broaden his cheesemaking knowledge, meeting with the likes of Ricki Carroll and Giuseppe Argentieri of The Mozzarella House in Peabody, MA. His story is quite unique — learn how he became a cheesemaker and why he loves the craft in the interview below.
In the year 2010, I was very privileged to host our President of Uganda who came to my old factory during his visit to Kayunga district. The theme for his tour of the district in Kayunga was prosperity for all. He recognized Seasons Dairy as a key player in increasing the household incomes for the entire community, especially the dairy farmers.
