Feed the Future Tanzania Mboga na Matunda

Feed the Future Tanzania Mboga na Matunda (MnM) will increase the productivity and profitability of horticulture value chains, while integrating large numbers of women and youth. Over its four years of implementation, the program will benefit more than 40,000 rural families, which will include 60 percent women and 30 percent youth as activity beneficiaries. Mboga na Matunda will achieve its objectives by: scaling improved technologies and practices; scaling market system models that serve as platforms for technology expansion; and strengthening the overall capacity of the industry, including the enabling environment for incentivizing investments along the entire value chain.

  • Project Duration: 2017-2021
  • Value Chains: Horticulture
  • Regions: Songwe; Morogoro; Iringa; Mbeya; Zanzibar




USAID-TAPP increased smallholder incomes, improved nutrition, and expanded markets through agricultural innovation and commercialization. The program worked with nearly 300,000 individuals, helping them achieve gross margins of $3,900 per hectares, and supported the establishment of 10,700 home and community gardens, providing technical support and education on growing and cooking with nutritious foods.
USAID-TAP worked in conjunction with the Tanzania Horticultural Association (TAHA), private-sector exporters, and government agencies to increase airfreight service through Kilimanjaro International Airport. TAHA, with support from USAID-TAP, established a grower-owned freight consolidation company that facilitated shipments to Europe. Over the course of the two-year project, nearly 1,000 tons of Tanzanian produce left from Kilimanjaro airport.
