Tanzanian Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa said Friday that the country’s food reserve agency planned to buy 305,000 tonnes of cereal crops in 2023.

The National Food Reserve Agency (NFRA) planned to buy the cereal crops harvested in the 2022/2023 season to attain food security in the country, Majaliwa said at the end of a two-week parliamentary session in the capital of Dodoma.
