    The consultant will be required to undertake a critical analysis and write up of campaigns in Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Uganda of food and beverage brands through nutrient profiling and power analysis and influence of the identified campaigns on social media platforms.

    MARKET SIZING (Zimbabwe and Tanzania only) (COMPONENT B)

    Following standard market analysis procedures, this component entails three parts. Firstly, it involves combining desk research, data collection, and analysis.

    This includes secondary data analysis encompassing import/export statistics, investment reports, company reports of major players, academic papers, NGO reports, and press articles.

    Secondly, it includes analyzing local data such as UNICEF partner data and conducting store audits in formal and informal retail outlets to identify market trends.

    Thirdly, stakeholder consultations with various industry experts and authorities are conducted to gauge market size and value.

    The consultant should ensure that data from these diverse sources are triangulated for a comprehensive analysis, incorporating desk research, available data, and stakeholder insights.
