3rd Cassava World Africa

10-11 Oct, 2017 - Lusaka, ZAMBIA

Radisson Blu Hotel Lusaka

"Raising Cassava Productivity in Africa to Meet
Rising Demands in Food & Industry
"

 

Opening Address

Honourable Dora Siliya, MP

Turning a traditional crop like Cassava into industrial carbohydrates for food and non-food applications is the ambition of many African countries. For many years, commercial cassava cultivation in Africa has been limited but this is changing! 

 

Governments across Africa are pushing for the expansions of cassava investments and value addition which can potentially create more employment and economic development for the countries.

The potential of cassava as a cash crop will increase but how far and fast will the region see the transformation? Going back to the root problems – Africa even though producing the largest volume of cassava, has yet to capitalize on its harvests through modern mechanization, availability of high yield cassava varieties and improving its processing capabilities. Limitation of investments in agriculture tools and infrastructure hinder these realizations. Where and how will plantation owners, farmers and processors seek the capital to support their expansion plans?

 

CMT’s 3rd Cassava World Africa returns to Lusaka -establishing itself as the preferred conference with commercial interests for cassava industry players across Africa. Covering cassava varieties , supplemental irrigation, seedlings and with  projects players in West and East Africa share their experiences, challenges, and opportunities with the common goal of maximizing cassava value added products.

ZAMBIAN Breweries Puts Millions to Fuel Zambia’s Cassava Growing Sector

Posted on : 03 Aug, 2017

 

ZAMBIAN Breweries (ZB) Plc has invested US$ 2.2 million in Luapula Province that will enable 4,000 small- scale farmers engaged to grow cassava. The brewery plans to turn Mansa town into a ‘cassava capital city of Zambia’.

 

ZAMBIAN Breweries is one of the top buyers of agricultural crops in Zambia – including maize, barley, sorghum and cassava to produce its beers.

 

Further the brewery has also commissioned a US$33 million malting plant in the Lusaka-South Multi Facility Economic Zone (LS-MFEZ) with an initial production capacity of 15,000 tonnes a year. The plant has boosted the demand for barley from local farmers.

 

On the R&D front, the brewery has collaborated with Zambia Agriculture Research Institute to develop new varieties for cassava and invest in mechanisation of cassava production with support from Musika.

Guinness Nigeria Plc gets 20,000 hectares of land for Cassava Cultivation and Processing

Posted on : 13 Jun, 2017

 

Oba Ewuare II of Benin Kingdom has offered 20,000 hectares of land to Guinness Nigeria Plc. The land will be used for cassava cultivation and processing.

 

The cassava farm worth over $20 million will be located in Edo state’s Ovia North-East local government area. The proposed cassava farm and processing place is expected to kick off during this year’s farming season.

 

The farm is slated to produce over 20,000 tonnes of cassava annually – that will be processed into cassava flour, starch, sugar and ethanol for industrial uses.

 

The Benin monarch’s move is seen as his commitment towards creating employment for the youth in Edo South senatorial district. The initiative is also expected to revive  agriculture to ensure adequate food supply and also provide raw materials for cassava based industries.

 

The palace will cooperate with the state government in facilitating investors in the sector.

 

Guinness Nigeria Plc has made some progress in agro businesses in the state and it is in line with the efforts of the palace. However, there are some challenges  particularly while commencing mass production of cassava and processing in Bini kingdom.
