In an effort to privatise the eight sugar enterprises, interested bidders were invited to submit proposals By the Ministry of Finance and Ethiopian Investment Holdings. The enterprises up for grabs which were hitherto managed by the Holding are Omo Kuraz 1, 2, 3, 5, Kesem, Arjo Dedesa, Tanabeles, and Tendaho.

In August 2022, the Ministry attempted to transfer state-owned enterprises to private entities, with over 20 companies expressing their interest in bidding where interested parties must sign non-disclosure agreements and pay a participation fee to participate in the bid.
