MeTL Group is one of Tanzania’s largest conglomerates producing and trading agricultural, industrial, and consumer goods. Our affordable and high-quality products are available everywhere in Tanzania and across Eastern and Southern Africa through the group’s efficient distribution network.
Our core business focuses on providing locally produced, value-added products and services that meet people’s everyday needs. We do this by adopting new manufacturing technologies and infrastructure, maintaining ethical and socially responsible business practices, investing in our people, and protecting our planet.
The MeTL Group corporate strategy has evolved as our businesses have grown, matured, and diversified into new sectors and regions over the last 50 years. Starting as a family-owned trading company in the 1970s with a desire to offer quality goods at affordable prices, by the late 1990s, our strategy had transformed to focus on local manufacturing and intra-regional trading to strengthen Tanzania’s growth and development in private industry.
The early 2000s saw the Group’s massive expansion with major acquisitions due to the Government’s privatization policies. The expansion set the stage for the next phase in MeTL Group’s strategic plan for the next decade; vertical integration and regional expansion.
