Arusha — Coffee production in Tanzania could more than double in four years' time if an action programme to increase the competitiveness of smallholder farmers is successfully implemented.
The ten-year programme launched in 2011/2012 aims to increase coffee production and quality from 50,000 tonnes a year by then to 150,000 tonnes in 2020/2021.
"It is the only way to achieve green revolution in coffee industry," said a report presented to stakeholders by the Tanzania Coffee Research Institute (TaCRI) during the just ended Nane Nane agricultural fair.
