Tanzania’s Government Develops Small-Scale Sugar Processing Machines to Help Sugarcane Farmers

Published Feb 23, 2023
The Tanzanian government is developing small-scale sugar processing machines for sugar production at sugarcane farming locations. By June 2023, the machines will begin to be tested, and the sugarcane farmers will be able to process 200MT of sugar cane per day, equivalent to 20MT of sugar. There has been a challenge of sugarcane damage due to a lack of market and large factories exceeding their processing capacity. Tanzania imported 50K MT of sugar in 2021, and the government is planning to stop importing sugar by 2025.
