Vijiji International promotes horticulture value chain for the purpose of sustainably contributing to increased production, employment and income generation to the resource poor in Tanzania. Horticulture products have the potential for a strong industry in Tanzania, but the industry has been given less attention, which is disquieting given the existing potential in production as well as the growing world market demands.
Vijiji International has recognized that horticulture needs to operate within the framework of the national policy priorities, national framework of institutions as well as the legal framework. Thus, for the horticulture sector to achieve its desirable objectives and targets the national policies, respective institutions as well as legislations need to be supportive in terms of improving the requisite infrastructure and promote the private sector contract farming model.
In view of the above impediments Vijiji International has taken urgent measures and addresses these barriers in terms of addressing policy (implementation) failure as well as holding the existing institutions responsible and accountable
