Program to Boost Coffee Production Commenced in TanzaniaNovember 14, 2012
The Tanzania Coffee Research Institute (TaCRI) has launched a program to increase the competitiveness of small-holder coffee growers in the country and to increase agricultural production, development and trade as a strategy to reduce rural poverty.
TaCRI will also collaborate with Tanzania's National Agricultural Sector Development Programme (ASDP) which has the overall objective of creating an enabling environment for improving agricultural productivity and profitability. Tanzania contributes approximately one per cent to the world coffee exports, but enjoys positive differentials in the Colombian mild group for its Arabica coffee. Tanzania's robusta coffee also enjoys premium prices in the world market as one of the best quality coffees.
