Cassava world Africa; Accra, Ghana
1 March 2016 - 2 March 2016

2nd Cassava World Africa
Cassava is now used in a variety of commercial applications – from cassava beers, feedstock for ethanol, flour and many others. Africa that produces the highest amount of cassava in the world is slowly realizing the crop’s commercial potential, especially in the western parts of the continent that has witnessed several new initiatives. For instance, this year Nigeria’s Flour Mills has introduced a new product – Golden Penny Multi-purpose flour, a bread and baking flour, which is a combination of wheat flour and 10 per cent high quality cassava flour (HQCF). The new product is in line with the Federal Government’s policy on the use of 20 percent HQCF for baking bread that can save the country N127 billion annually.


Similarly, in the past few years several investments have taken place including the launch of commercially-made cassava-based beers by brewers like SABMiller and Diageo in Ghana and Mozambique. They source cassava locally to brew the beer. In addition, a cassava fueled biorefinery was announced in Nigeria by China New Energy. Zimbabwe is also set to have a cassava ethanol plant to boost ethanol output as the country moves to accelerate mandatory fuel blending.


More investments are expected in Africa’s cassava industry and to analyze these developments, business opportunities and investment potential, CMT is heading to Accra, Ghana to host its 2nd Cassava World Africa on 1-2 March 2016.


The summit will focus on the ‘Roadmap to Raise Cassava Production & Investments of Higher Value-added Products’ and present key highlights on:
- Progress and market prospects for cassava production of Starch, HQFC, Beer, Feed, Ethanol

- Financing solutions and cassava investment projects across the continent

- Cassava breeding & agronomy research to increase yields and quality including diseases management

- Cost effective post-harvest logistics and processing technologies to increase cassava utilization

- Mechanization of cassava production
