Olam’s operations in Tanzania began in 1994. Since then, we have established a significant presence in the country, with 116 permanent staff and almost 8,000 seasonal employees spread across 15 out of its 22 regions. We particularly have a strong local footprint in Dar Es Salaam where we have our head office and in locations like Mtwara, Mwanza, Mtibwa and Kyela, where we operate regional offices.
Today, we manage an integrated supply chain for six key products, namely cotton, cashew, coffee, sesame, teak and cocoa, and run a very large manual cashew processing factory in Tanzania. In overseeing every stage of the supply chain from origination right to distribution, we are able to add value and manage risk across our operations, effectively delivering quality products to our customers worldwide.
