Agricultural Industry

Introduction

Tanzania’s agricultural based economy provides readily available raw materials for agribased industrial sector. The wide range of climates favours the production of a wide variety of products leading to plenty supply of raw agricultural produce, which could be processed domestically. Arable land is planted with cereals, coffee, tea, cashew, sisal, pyrethrum, cotton, tobacco, sugar etc. There is significant production of subtropical fruits, vegetables, meat, hides, skins, groundnuts and cut flowers. This presents opportunities in processing and other value adding activities from agricultural raw materials.

Opportunities

  • Abundant fruits and vegetables produced domestically can be utilised for the    production of fruit concentrates, juices and all forms of fruit and vegetable canning.
  • Meat processing and packaging from both cattle and game meat and processing of dairy products. Potential export markets include the Gulf States, UAE and Asia.
  • Manufacturing of spirits from molasses produced from sugar processing factories in Kilimanjaro and Morogoro.
  • Production of processed dairy products such as sweetened condensed milk, milk powder, infant milk, butter, margarine, ice cream, yoghurt, cheese etc.
  • Opportunities in establishment of cotton spinning and weaving utilising abundant    supply of local grown cotton thus increasing production of manufactured textiles. The existence of abundant supply of cotton provides readily available opportunities for investment in textile industries. The textile industries can also take advantage of the US Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) status, which have removed barriers for exporting Tanzania’s textile products to the US market
