The horticulture sector in Tanzania faces number of challenges that limit its capacity to fully exploit market opportunities. Even though the southern highlands of Tanzania are considered as a breadbasket of the country, there is a high rate of malnutrition, particularly among children.

Rikolto is implementing a 4-year horticulture program (2020-2024) called “EU AGRI-CONNECT" which is funded by the European Union with the objective of increasing the competitiveness and profitability of the horticulture sector in Southern-Tanzania.

The objective of the project is to contribute to inclusive growth, promote private sector development and job creation in the agricultural sector, and to increase food and nutrition security in Tanzania. This programme is contributing to the 2022 – 2026 Rikolto strategy which is mainly funded by DGD.
