Tanzania Horticultural Association (TAHA) is an apex member based private sector organization that advocates for the growth and competitiveness of the horticulture industry in Tanzania.

The Association safeguards the interests of industry stakeholders and ensures industry issues are well represented within national and international agendas.

Associate members (592) include smallholder farmer groups and associations and individuals taking part in horticultural activities. TAHA’s strength is anchored in its wide membership base which has continually expanded across Tanzania mainland and Zanzibar.
TAHA operates two complementary divisions, the Development Division and the Commercial Division. The Development Division comprises of the Association (TAHA). It delivers demand driven services to industry stakeholders. The division coordinates and implements all development projects and programs that address various gaps and challenges from smallholders’ level to national industry issues. Through its developmental activities, TAHA provides highly needed strategic leadership to shape the industry and guide investments and contributions in the sector. TAHA’s commercial division comprises of two independent subsidiary companies, TAHAFresh Handling Ltd and TAHAGreen Ltd, TAHAFresh provides the industry with integrated logistics services including air and sea freighting, trucking, general clearing and forwarding, cargo handling and insurance.
