Tanzania: Fruit growing initiative to benefit farmers

Britania Allied Industries has opened up an initiative of distributing free fruit seedlings to farmers as it seeks to promote the growing of the commodity that can be used to feed Uganda’s growing juice manufacturing industry.

The move that kicked off in Kibale and Kisoro districts, will in essence help to reduce the importation of fruits that are used in the manufacture of fruit juices in Uganda. Uganda’s juice manufacturers import about 60 per cent of fruit ingredients that are brought into the country as processed liquefied juices.

Such imports are usually expensive, thus they feed into the prices of final juice products that are put out on the market for consumption.
