In June 2011, the United Republic of Tanzania joined the SUN Movement with a letter of commitment from HE Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, the President. To support the government’s multistakholder efforts to end malnutrition, donor, civil society and business networks were established and fully functioning by 2015. Today, Tanzania has the largest national SUN Business Network globally with over 140 member companies, strong plans to mobilise the food industry for more safe and nutritious food as well as pitching competitions to ignite business-investor linkages.
