Tanzania: Banana trade deal might trickle down to other crops

A trading initiative by the Nairobi-based Twiga Foods Company and a large group of banana growers, spearheaded by the Kilimanjaro-based Mackjaro Company, could bring a new impetus to the banana industry in Tanzania. Twiga Foods, which distributes fresh fruits and vegetables in cities all over Kenya, has pledged to buy bananas from Tanzania.

Undoubtedly, commercial banana cultivation has the potential to bring in millions in foreign exchange, and also remain a staple in much of the country. That is why the Twiga Foods/Mackjaro initiative is a blessing-in-disguise of sorts not only for our banana farmers, but also for the economy at large in terms of fobs creation, value-addition and incomes generation.
