DADTCO has 7 years of experience in implementing processing systems in Nigeria for cassava. DADTCO’s main product in Nigeria is High Quality Cassava Flour (HQCF). Cassava cake from the AMPU is used as raw material for the production of HQCF. In 2011 Nigeria made a real shift to realize the government objective of 10% HQCF inclusion in (wheat) flour.
In November 2011 the first ever commercial-scale cassava-based beer was launched in Mozambique. The beer, ‘Impala’, is brewed in Mozambique by SABMiller’s local subsidiary, Cervejas de Moçambique (CDM). Impala is brewed using 70% cassava and is the result of several years of research to overcome the challenges of processing and brewing with cassava. Cassava cake is transported to the brewery and replaces imported malted barley.
Cassava is Ghana’s most highly produced crop and a main staple of the Ghanaian consumer diet, with per capita consumption averaging 148 kilograms per year. While the crop is cultivated in large enough volumes to produce an annual surplus of more than 5.6 million metric tons as of 2010, its commercialization is significantly limited by rapid spoilage upon harvest and a lack of processing capacity close to production areas. Due to these factors, cassava has historically been consumed only in raw or lightly processed form, primarily in staple foods such as gari, fufu, and agbelima.
