Intellectual property infringement. Tanzania Food and Drugs Authority requires manufactures to disclose recipe or formulae which is an intellectual property so as to approve or register products.  
Status note
During the bilateral Meeting held from 23- 27 April 2019, Tanzania reported that what is required is not the formula but the ingridients/composition contained in the product and it is an international requirement. Tanzania was of the view that the NTB should tabled during the meeting of the Standards committee where food and drugs experts are members.
However, the Meeting agreed that this NTB is resolved.
