Tanzania International Farm Profile

European settlers established both these coffee growing estates during the early 1900s, on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.

They were nationalised by the Tanzanian Government in 1973 as part of a socialism programme. A Rural Cooperative Society ran them, but the output fell disastrously to virtually none by 1995.

The government is now following a policy of leasing dilapidated estates to private enterprise.

Mr Dhiru Chauhan took over the estates on 1st January 2000 on a 30 year lease. The two estates are now being run as one economic unit. Antippi estate covers 47 hectares and Kahawa estate 48 hectares.
