Poultry Value Chain Assessment in Tanzania

Program Objectives and PrioritiesUSDA/FAS seeks to support applied research to better understand in the supply chain and market system for poultry and eggs in Tanzania.

Using quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods approaches, such research would identify existing barriers to trade, gaps


in technical assistance, and capacity building opportunities to increase the availability of poultry products to Tanzanian consumers, through increased local production and imports.

The recipient will collaborate with FAS to organize and conduct survey interviews with a representative pool of professionals e.g., importers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, institutional buyers, food product manufacturers and processors, HRI professionals, as well as local government and trade associations, government policy makers and consumers.

It is anticipated that this research program will cover:
1. Supply chain segments of poultry meat and eggs in Tanzania, including domestic suppliers and importers, and transshipment to and from neighboring countries 2. The current market for U. S. agricultural exports of poultry products (meat and eggs) and inputs (e.g.

feed grains) to Tanzania and how that market can expand overtime.

3. Tanzania’s agricultural trade policies on poultry meat, eggs, and feed, and how those policies may be affected by the recent change in the government 4. A gap analysis of capacity building and technical assistance for the poultry and egg industry, e.g.cold chain, grades and standards system, agricultural extension, feed sector, etc.

5. Recommendations on improving methods, processes and tools used by the Tanzanian Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries Development to identify national, international, and intraregional trade opportunities, and market trends that may better enable improved two-way trade with the United States.

These recommendations would be also used to inform FAS and U. S. poultry meat and feed industries.Project components may include, but are not limited to, the following:
1. A discovery phase consisting of discussions between FAS and the recipient to discuss and review the project in terms of primary objectives, specific information areas sought, sample development, questionnaire development, etc.

2. Based upon these initial discussions (and a review of any existing data and previous studies), develop the questionnaire instruments to be administered throughout the course of the project.

3. The primary data collection will focus on supply chain actors such as producers, traders, processors, input suppliers, trade associations, government officials, and other entities recommended by FAS.
