Production of cloves in Zanzibar 2015-2020
Zanzibar produced roughly three thousand metric tons of cloves in 2020. The production recovered in comparison to the previous year, when 1,690 metric tons of the spice were yielded. Once a leading world producer of cloves, the Tanzanian archipelago has struggled to restore the spices industry, which has led to severe fluctuations in the production volume. For instance, in 2017, over eight thousand metric tons of cloves were produced in Zanzibar.
