TAHA sets a strong plan to tap into foreign markets

Posted on 22nd Feb | 2021

This was highlighted by Antony Chamanga, the TAHA Chief Development manager while speaking to reporters on 16th February 2021 on the TAHA’s focus for 2021 where he said that the horticultural productivity has been increasing from time to time, and therefore TAHA focuses on improving market access to enable Tanzanians to sell products in foreign markets. "For a farmer to have access to markets, especially foreign markets, he must need someone in a place where we as TAHA strive to link farmers and traders," said Mr. Chamanga. He also mentioned that TAHA will focus on growing mangoes, pineapples, avocados, and other fruits that currently have great potential for processing. Mr. Chamanga added that 90% of Tanzania's land is suitable for pepper crops, where TAHA also seeks to connect its farmers with domestic and international markets. On the other hand, Kelvin Remen, TAHA Business Environment Manager said Tanzania has continued to be at the forefront of meeting the regional and international standards, especially in the proper use of pesticides. This success is due to the great efforts taken by the Government in collaboration with TAHA and other stakeholders in ensuring that horticulture producers are educated on the proper use of pesticides. He said for six to seven months there could be only one complaint since TAHA works closely with the Ministry, TPRI, and the producers themselves to ensure that the products meet the International standards for export.
