TAHA has applauded the government for the support to the horticulture industry that has attracted increased local and international investments leading to Sector Growth averaging 11% per annum. TAHA CEO, Dr. Jacquiline Mkindi remaked this during a meeting with the Deputy Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Prof. Siza Tumbo when he paid a courtesy call to TAHA offices in Arusha on 16th October and exchange knowledge on horticulture outlook in Tanzania and how to expand the markets for agricultural produce. During his visit, TAHA raised some pertinent issues to the government including exploring the best practices from other countries and initiating various Incentives that would boost horticulture transformation in Tanzania and unlock the existing potential. “Ethiopia has a National Logistics Strategy which has a component on developing cold chain storage and associated facilities for perishable goods, something which we could learn and adopt to improve infrastructure and handling efficiency as the industry continues to attract more investors,” said Dr. Mkindi. Other issues discussed were National Horticulture Development Framework/Roadmap and revival of the closed horticultural farms in Northern Tanzania.
