Executive Summary

Cigarette consumption in Tanzania has been erratic on a year-to-year basis. The economic difficulties, recurrent droughts, and extensive infrastructure problems are the main factors that influenced the market. The market is supplied by the Tanzania Cigarette Company and the two main brands are Sweet Menthol and Portsman. The government has taken a pro-active approach to tobacco control with the passage of the Tobacco Products (Regulations) Act in April 2003. The act brought in new restrictions on promotion as well as health warnings and an increase in the legal age to smoke to 18.

Key Findings

Many factors such as economic difficulties, the effects of recurrent drought on leaf growing, the extensive infrastructure problems and frequent power cuts have badly affected the supply chain in Tanzania

The increase in prices impacted the duty paid sales as many consumers switched to the non-duty paid sector or down traded within the duty paid market to cheaper brands

The non-duty paid sector is believed to be quite important and is likely to have grown in recent years because of tax-induced price rises

Tanzania Cigarette Company Ltd is the main manufacturers in Tanzania
