The National Ranching Company Ltd (NARCO) was established in 1975 after changing the name from National Agricultural Company (NACO) a company that existed since 1968. NARCO is owned wholly by the government and is under the Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries. The company is charged with raising livestock with emphasis on beef cattle in ranches spread through nine regions in Tanzania. Currently NARCO operates 15 ranches in nine regions in Tanzania.

You will find NARCO ranches in Dodoma (Kongwa), Morogoro (Dakawa and Mkata), Coast (Ruvu), Tanga (Mzeri Hill), Kilimanjaro (West Kilimanjaro), Kigoma (Uvinza), Kagera (Kikulula, Mabale, Kagoma, Kitengule, Misenyi and Mwisa II), Rukwa (Kalambo) and Mbeya (Usangu).

Operation of NARCO ranches is divided into core ranches (directly managed by NARCO) and ranch blocks leased to local livestock investors. NARCO is therefore, closely partnering with the private sector in creating wealth through livestock keeping in commercial ranches.

The mainstay of NARCO beef production is the Boran breed; a large, hardy indigenous African breed capable of producing high quality, tender and juicy beef! At NARCO this great beef is Kongwa Beef. Please collect your share of Kongwa beef from one of our outlets in Kongwa ranch (along Morogoro – Dodoma highway), Dodoma City (Area C), Dar es Salaam city (Nkrumah Street), Ruvu ranch (along Dar – Morogoro highway), Morogoro town, Sanya Juu and Sumbawanga town. Take a bite of the famous Kongwa beef, you will not regret your choice.

Welcome to NARCO, allow us to serve you!
