Background Information – Project

Three Agro-processing & training centers were established in 2009 in Dar Es Salaam, Morogoro & Zanzibar as donor-funded jointly by the Republic of Korea's Government through Korean International Cooperation Agent (KOICA) and the Government. The objectives of the project are to;

 i) Strengthen the capacity of the agro-processing industry by sharing Korea's agro-processing technology and development experience;

ii) Establish the Agro-Processing Training Center (hereinafter referred to as "the Center") with adequate facility for providing technical training to small and medium scale food processors; and

iii) Assist in establishing a quality assurance authority for the development of the agro-processing industry in Zanzibar.

The establishment of the agro-processing centers' is to support micro, small and medium scale food processors. The Centers are designed to process various food products like spices, herbs, fruits, cassava, sweet potatoes, etc.

KOICA constructed the agro-processing centers in single-story sandcrete brick structures. The centers were divided into training & processing areas and general & administrative areas. Training & processing areas were for the training and production, and the general regions were for the theoretical training in class, information research, conference, administration, and other subsidiary facilities. Generally, the construction was supposed to have been completed within six months, but the works went very slow and took almost two years before the contractor abandoned the sites without completing the assignment.       

KOICA Tanzania Office contacted UNOPS to conduct a detailed assessment of the 3 agro-processing centers with full-scale rehabilitation and procurement of relevant equipment costs.
