Invest in the Cassava Processing in Nigeria

The cultivation of the improved cassava varieties by farmers in Nigeria has enhanced the position of Nigeria as the world-leading producer of cassava with production output of 45 million MT of fresh cassava root in 2014. However due to the lack of modern logistic, infrastructure and technology only about 30% of fresh cassava root are processed into finished products which are mainly cassava flour and cassava starch. Therefore, we oversee an opportunity for foreign investment in the cassava industry in Nigeria.
