Agribusiness is one of Tanzania’s most important indigenous industries, contributing an estimated USD 13.9 billion to the national economy and employing over 67% of its population directly and indirectly. The awards programme also offers a platform to highlight the efforts of all those involved in the successes to date and celebrate their achievements together at the prestigious Awards ceremony.

361 Degrees has partnered with the Chamber of Commerce, Industry And Agriculture and PKF East Africa for the first of their kind in the country and region, meant to celebrate the country's unsung heroes who have surmounted odds to provide for the population in Tanzania and beyond and generate revenue for the Country.

Tanzanian farmers have been among the region’s most unlucky. From erratic supply and price of fertilizer in recent times, to late delivery of planting materials like seeds which has ultimately affected planting and harvesting seasons, and lack of ready markets, the farmers have nevertheless braved new and emerging challenges to keep a trade and a profession going.

361 Degrees inspired by the hard work of the stakeholder in the Agriculture sector has sought to create a reward system on an annual basis, to celebrate our unsung heroes. Thus we need to return the dignity of the soil and appreciate the immense contribution that goes into placing food in the table of millions of families in Tanzania and beyond.
