In today’s market, imports from South Africa are the primary source for fresh produce. Weekly truckloads of fresh produce are delivered to supermarkets and caterers in Tete. The long travel time decreases the shelf life of the produce. A local supply chain with locally grown produce will provide for a longer shelf life and lower prices. South Africa also commonly suffers from a low harvest, as low as 60% of what is planned. This raises prices for the cost of imported produce and causes inconsistent prices in Mozambique.
