The dairy sector is one of the significant sectors in Tanzania, with high potential for improving food security and welfare. Tanzania is a net importer of milk and milk products, but it has potential to increase production and possibly even exports if efficiency can be improved. The Dairy Sector in Tanzania is driven by large number of improved dairy cattle, rapid population growth, and increasing consumption. The analysis estimated that between 1993 and 2020, the annual demand for milk and dairy products in developing countries would grow at between 3.2% and 3.5% annually, implying that the demand will more than double by 2020. Demand for milk is expected to increase in Tanzania from the current average of per capita consumption of 45 liters per year to at least the level that the highest milk consuming country has attained, i.e. 100 liters per year.
Milk production increased from 1995 to 2010 with around 7% per annum from 555 million liters to 1,600 million liters in 2010 to which the traditional sector contributed about 70%. The livestock sector contributed 5.9% to the GDP in 2005, the dairy industry accounting for over 30% of the livestock sector. Milk imports are around 2 – 3% of the total consumption while cost of imports of dairy products amounted to 7.7 million US$ in 2009. Dairy imports mainly originate from Kenya, South Africa and the Netherlands.
