CDI is interested in developing an oilseed processing facility for sunflower to develop the oilseed value chain.

There is growing demand for high-quality cooking oil in Tanzania, who imports over 50 percent of its vegetable oil from Asia. CDI believes there is a strong demand for locally produced oil as much of the oil from Asia is low quality. CDI has commissioned a sunflower and soy oilseed processing facility in Tanzania.
