Have you ever wondered about the supply chain and market system for poultry meat and eggs in Tanzania?
Someone is going to research it with $ 180,000 from the Department of Agriculture.
The USDA is funding the grant to use "quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-method approaches to research existing trade barriers, gaps in technical assistance, and capacity building to increase the availability of poultry products for Tanzanian consumers through increased local production and imports."
The Grantee will work with the USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service to interview importers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, institutional buyers, food manufacturers and processors, local governments and trade associations, policy makers and consumers.
The research program will deal with the domestic suppliers and importers of poultry meat and eggs in Tanzania as well as transhipment to and from neighboring countries.
