How to become a TAMA Member

In the first place, TAMA Farmers Trust membership is voluntary and is renewed annually. A tobacco grower whether small scale or corporate, registers with the Tobacco  Commission (TC) for a following year’s production.

The TC registration form asks the grower to indicate an association to which he belongs by way of filling the space. It is at that point when one writes TAMA as his or her Association that they become a member. Through the TC data TAMA is able to trace its membership, which stands to benefit from all its services ranging from advocacy to tobacco sales representation in the floors.

Tobacco production is not easy but they are other unscrupulous individuals and groups of people who just want to reap heavily ignoring the producer. This is the time TAMA comes in to aid so that the producer earns what he or she deserves through a win-win protocol.

Now that the 2017-2018 TC registration has been opened, be encouraged to register so that you grow and sale your crop next season without legal hitches while remembering to endorse TAMA as your Association.
