About Korosho Marathon 2022
Korosho Marathon has been generated from one of the core functions of CBT which is “To promote the development of Cashew production, processing and marketing” and again the Fifth and Sixth term Government has shown clearly their focus on promoting investment in the Cashew sub-sector specifically on the encouragement of local consumption of cashew nut and other products like jam, juice, cashew milk, wine, Ethanol, Apple meat of which will automatically trigger the increase of local processing and have a multiplier effect in the economy of the country. To emphasize such activities, this year’s Korosho Marathon will seek to raise funds to support small cashewnut processing groups in the Mtwara region aiming to support women groups and individual processors with high processing capacity in Tandahimba and Newala districts. The selected district are the leading ones with 95% of processed kernels consumed locally in Tanzania. 45% of the collected revenue from this line will assist small processors to access shelling machines, packaging machines, and storage facilities
