Following a great demand for coffee beans, cashews, spices, honey, meats, vegetables, avocadoes, mangoes, and other fruits from Tanzania, the East African country is expecting an upsurge in its food exports to Qatar.
Tanzanian ambassador Fatma Mohamed Rajab: “We would like to take this opportunity to introduce more Tanzanian products in the Qatar market, which were well-received here, so the embassy has distributed different samples through KON Group, which is our strategic partner in Qatar.”
During a recent forum, Rajab also spoke about the opportunities that Qatar investors are interested in Tanzania, which include gold and mining, real estate projects, pharmaceuticals, construction, Islamic banking, and hunting, among others.
“It is now high time to capture the Middle East market as majority of Tanzania’s products are in high demand. In collaboration with KON Group as our strategic partner, the embassy welcomes Qatar’s business community to explore the various opportunities available in Tanzania,” Rajab pointed out during the forum.
The Middle East is now Tanzania’s “main focus” in Avocado production, TanTrade stated. Tanzania is among the top three African coffee-producing countries. Coffee accounts for 5% of Tanzania’s GDP, generating $100mn per annum. Tanzania honey also has a large market, especially in Germany, the UK, Belgium, France, and Italy, TanTrade stated.
