Olam’s operations in Tanzania began in 1994. Since then, we have established a significant presence in the country, with 122 permanent staff and over 2,000 seasonal employees spread across 15 out of the 22 regions. We have a particularly strong presence in Dar Es Salaam where we have our head office, and in Songea, Mwanza, Bunda, Bokoba, and Kyela, where we operate regional offices.

Today we manage an integrated supply chain for 4 key products, cotton, sesame, cocoa, and green coffee. Our 2,000 hectare green coffee project is based in Lipokela village. The Olam Tanzania subsidiary AVIV Tanzania, was established in 2011 to grow world class Arabica coffee by implementing environmental and social standards. To read more about the development of the coffee plantation, particularly with regard to water security, farmer livelihoods, food security and labour practices, please see our case study here.

In overseeing every stage of the supply chain across our products in Tanzania, from origination through to distribution, we are able to add value and manage risk across our operations, delivering quality products to our customers worldwide.
