Sunflower in Tanzania is a fast-growing industry that contributes significantly to the national edible cooking oil requirements. However, as is the case in many developing countries around the world, edible oil consumption is dominated by palm oil, the cheaper vegetable oil. By value, palm oil imports into Tanzania are the single biggest agricultural product import and the second-largest overall product import behind petroleum oils.
Value Chain Solutions (VCS) had the opportunity to visit Tanzania a number of times over the years to conduct various in-country projects for both private sector and NGO clients. Having explored the country quite extensively over a 15-year period and hence developing an in-depth understanding of and gaining insights into the country, we wanted to highlight some impressions obtained.
