Our mission is to initiate a cassava revolution across Africa.
DADTCO is a social enterprise persuing poverty alleviation with entrepreneurial zeal, business methods and the courage to innovate and to prevent soil depletion.
The demand across Africa for cassava products (cassava cake, high-quality cassava flour, starch and glucose) is expected to rise rapidly due to urbanization and the global increase in grain prices.
It is DADTCO’s conviction that agricultural development only takes place when farmers have access to guaranteed markets for their products.
DADTCO developed a patented innovative “split” processing technology that has dramatically changed the way cassava is perceived, grown and processed in Africa.
Partnerships are very important to DADTCO.
