Project General Description

The project will provide a modern hygienic slaughter facility in Dodoma as an essential element to the marketing chain. Livestock marketing is considered to be the area which offers the best opportunity for investment in sub-sector and one which will catalyse development in other areas within the sub-sector. The project activities are structured around three major components, namely: (i) Strengthening of Livestock Marketing Services and Infrastructure, (ii) Construction of a Modern Abattoir in Dodoma City, and (iii) Institutional Support which included: construction of Meat Industry Training Centre (MITC); Training and Project Management; and Technical Assistance. The project will be implemented over a period of five years under the overall direction of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock Development and Cooperatives. The direct benefits of the project will include: increase in offtake rates, reduction in weight losses and mortality through improved rail transport and stock route services, employment and income generating activities, and supply of wholesome meat from animals slaughtered under proper sanitary conditions.
