Tanzania counts with the third largest livestock population on the African continent and the livestock sector contributes more than one tenth of the overall GDP. The red meat sector is marginal depriving many people in rural areas particularly traditional herders and small scale farmers, but also urban dwellers from income opportunities related to improved animal production and value addition activities. With the exception of a very small high price quality meat segment, slaughtering and meat handling throughout the country is substandard and causes enormous food safety and health hazards to the majority of the population. The livestock population in the country both from traditional and commercial production is increasing as some farmers adopt improved production systems such as feedlot ting and commercial producers respond to demand for quality meat niche and export markets. The red meat value chain is considered to produce various products that need to be recovered and processed into valuable products in order to generate higher value, better prices for producers and reduce environmental pollution. The potentials which the livestock rearing and meat production sector offers have only been utilized marginally.

Major Factors effecting Tanzania Edible Meat Market are low agro production, Low animal feed production/stock and low availability of labours.
