Tanzania, United Republic of
3.5 Tanzania Food and Additional Suppliers

At both regional and local scales, there are different vendors for food products, including maize grain, pulses (pigeon peas and beans), iodized salt and sorghum. Indeed, the agriculture in Eastern Africa is the principal economic sector. It is estimated that almost 70% of the regional population is relying on agriculture, and this sector absorbs a large proportion of the working population in the market (UN, NEPAD, 2013). However, the region is also subject to environmental effects which often affect the production, and the local market may be unable to meet the demand.

For non-food suppliers, the Tanzanian market is well-established, although it is mainly concentrated in the main cities. A large number of suppliers are offering a range of products and different quality levels.
