East-Africa, Tanzania: a Farmers’ Roadmap of Expanding Successful Horticulture
EAT FRESH is a Public Private Partnership project implemented in the horticulture value chain of the Southern Highlands in Tanzania. The purpose of the project is to make the Iringa and Njombe regions viable sources for the production of three high-value horticulture crops: French beans, snow peas and avocados. This will be done by investing in farmer organisation development, agro-logistics, eco-friendly fertilizer and linkages with export markets.
