Oyogist has learned that the Tanzania Atomic Energy Commission (TAEC) has initiated plans to commence preparations for the construction of a 20 billion Tanzanian shillings (about 8.6 million U.S. dollars) food storage facility.

Simon Mdoe, TAEC’s senior researcher, said the food storage facility will help in conservation of food through irradiation technology.

Mdoe said the facility to be constructed at Mbezi Luis in the suburbs of the commercial capital Dar es Salaam is projected to play a vital role in expanding and modernizing the country’s capacity in professional food storage.

He said basic processes for the project have already been finalized, as the facility is projected to expand the country’s ability to export foods and other agricultural products abroad at recommended standard and quality.
