Deputy Minister Ulega asks TARI to research better pineapple varieties

Tanzania’s Deputy Minister for Livestock and Fisheries, Abdallah Hamis Ulega has advised the Tanzania Agriculture Research Institute to conduct research that will establish useful and suitable pineapples most preferred by pineapple juice factories in the Coastal Region.

Speaking at the 46th Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair (DITF) when visiting TARI pavilions, he said many pineapples grown by farmers in the Coast region lack proper taste that could be desired by local factories; as such many factories opt to import the pineapples from outside the region.

He said TARI should also visit pineapple factories; observe the quality of pineapple being preferred so that it can conduct fruitful research on the varieties most preferred by local factories.
