Sunflower Value Chain Development in Tanzania: Policy Brief
By ASPIRES Tanzania and Dalberg, March 2018. Tanzanians consume nearly 600,000 MT of edible oils per year. Imported palm oil is 64% of this total, and retails at a low price of TSh. 3,500/L. While many consumers prefer sunflower oil because of its perceived health and quality benefits, they find refined sunflower oil more expensive at TSh. 5,000/L. Solvent extraction technology can lower the price of refined sunflower oil to be more competitive with the price of palm oil. However, there is only one major solvent extraction refinery in Tanzania, and it is focused on high- and middle-income consumers.
