Post Sanctions Iran Investment Summit


Cassava can replace expensive imported raw materials such as starch and wheat flour for various industries in Africa. Several new initiatives are undertaken to exploit the commercial potential of cassava derived raw materials.


Ghana is currently the third leading cassava producer in Africa and the sixth in the world. Recently, the country's Minister for Food and Agriculture, Mr Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey, said - "government is considering a policy for high quality cassava flour (HQCF) for use in the food industry and the government will continue to work with our local and international partners in addressing the challenges facing the cassava value chain."


Meanwhile Nigeria is encouraging the production of cassava based ethanol. The Emerging Africa Infrastructure Fund is partnering with the country's cassava growers association to produce ethanol in 10 distilleries in different states. Each facility will use feedstock from 6,000 ha of cassava - that is grown nearby.
