"Transforming Cassava in Africa
- Enhancing food security to
agro-industrial products!"

 

A new phase in cassava production is emerging in Africa! Cassava is next to maize as Africa’s most important staple crop, its high nutritional value, starch content and resilience to climate change making it one of the most versatile crops. Governments have finally realized the huge potential of the plant as a driver of rural development. Nigeria is taking the lead to commercialize cassava & adding value to cash in on this “wonder” crops! Other African countries are realizing the potential and working towards monetizing the cassava value chain, with priority to meet its food security needs.

 

"Zambia Breweries Plc is expected to launch cassava clear beer on the local market in the second quarter of 2014. Company managing director Anele Malumo said the product will help promote the agriculture sector by creating ready market for small-scale cassava farmers."
