The Sugar Board of Tanzania (SBT) is an autonomous regulatory authority established under the Sugar Industry Act No. 26 of 2001. It is under the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Cooperatives.

The Sugar Board of Tanzania (SBT) is under the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Cooperatives.  SBT was established under section 3 of the Sugar Industry Act No. 26 of 2001 (revised in 2009) which came into operation on 1st July 2003 vide Government Notice. No 329 of 5th July 2002.

The Board is entrusted with the duties of supporting and co-ordinating the sugar industry in Tanzania.

As a result of the privatization of sugar production, the revised Act requires that, with effect from 1st July 2006, SBT should not be involved in developmental and/or investment activities in the sugar industry as it used to. The factory and farm owners should be responsible for their investments and development of their factories and farms respectively.

Our vision is to become an efficient and effective regulatory body able to service and support the sugar industry towards achieving competitiveness and sustainability.

Guided by principles of impartiality, excellent services and integrity, SBT seeks to create, sustain and regulate an environment conducive to sugar stakeholders to efficiently and profitably produce cane, sugar and related products
