Abstract
The Zanzibar coco-nut industry exports approximately 12,800 tons of copra and 96,700 lb. of oil per annum, valued at £128,800 and £930 respectively. The quality of the copra is very inferior and is classified amongst the world's worst. It is not readily acceptable to the English buyers and finds its way to the cheap Marseilles and Genoa markets. The oil, which is expressed from the better qualities, usually produced by Government estates and a few enterprising manufacturers, is sold along the East Coast of Africa, and in Egypt, Arabia and South Africa.
