OUR CASSAVA PRODUCTS
At Dadtco Philafrica cassava is processed into an intermediate product and into end products. The intermediate product, Cassava Starch Cake, is a semi wet cassava paste. The end products are Cassava Starch Flour (CSF), which is a white flour, and Natural Cassava Fibre, fibres derived from the cassava root.
We guarantee consistent high quality due to our unique and breakthrough cassava processing technique.
OUR ROOT SUPPLY
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 mobile processing technology that has dramatically changed the way cassava is perceived, grown and processed in Africa.
Cassava is naturally gluten free. The flour is extremely well suited for baking. Compared to other gluten free flours, the characteristics of cassava flour come closest to those of wheat flour.
At Dadtco Philafrica we make products from cassava. Cassava is the major starchy food and cash crop in Sub Saharan Africa and is mainly grown by smallholder farmers. Dadtco Philafrica bridges the gap between smallholder farmers and large food companies through providing breakthrough technologies and by creating a market that smallholder farmers can sell to. Our vision is to connect smallholder farmers to markets so they can lift themselves out of poverty. It is our mission to initiate a cassava revolution across Africa, alleviating subsistence farmers from poverty.
We are market leader for cassava processing in Africa. Africa is the world’s number 1 cassava producer. The very perishable cassava root needs to be processed within 24 hours of harvesting, making it a difficult crop to industrialize. We have invented a mobile cassava processing factory that is able to process cassava into food grade products at village level. Instead of farmers coming to our factory, our factory goes to the farmers.
