This study targets the changing shape and nature of the food landscape of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, it also draws out lessons for debates on city region food systems and urban food planning.
This project explores the city foodscape of rapidly growing Dar es Salaam with over 4.5 million inhabitants. By following some important foods for eaters in the city, a picture of the changing shape and nature of Dar es Salaam’s foodscape is drawn and lessons for debates on city region food systems and urban food planning were learned. It was found that key staple foods are coming from the rural hinterland through a food system that is not part of or modeled on the globally dominant corporate food system and as such represents a working alternative.
