Cost of cassava processing plant in Nigeria

Overview of Nigeria cassava and cassava starch

Cassava is the most important root crop in Nigeria. And cassava alone contributes about 45% of agricultural GDP in Nigeria for food or domestic purposes but its industrial processing and utilization has been very limited. Currently, the country produces about 40,000,000 tons of the commodity and due to the desire of the federal government to reduce import dependency, there is national plan aimed at increasing the production of cassava starch as a substitute to corn starch. The annual demand for cassava starch is estimated at 350,000 tons, while the national supply is estimated at about 300,000 tons. Therefore the government encourage to build cassava starch processing plant.
