What is the cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria
Nigeria is a big country for cassava cultivation. However, due to the lack of deep-processing enterprises, the cassava planted by the farmers can only be sold or sell to cassava processing plant. The sales of cassava is too single to form a good market environment which become the troubles of a lot of farmers. The Nigerian government encourages of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria to further increase the value of cassava, improve rural infrastructure, increase farmers' incomes and fight poverty. But how much is the cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria ?
Cassava in Nigeria
The cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria is mainly affected by the following factors:
To know the cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria, we must first know the cassava processing products, because cassava can be processed into cassava starch, cassava flour, fufu, garri, cassava chips, cassava granules and so on. Different cassava processing products required for are different cassava processing equipment and different size of cassava processing plant, and therefore the prices are naturally very different.

Taking cassava starch as an example to analyze the cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria
The first factor affecting the cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria is the equipment cost. If you want to run a cassava processing plant, the traditional manual processing method can't meet the market demand either in terms of craftsmanship or product quality. Therefore, it is necessary to use modern automatic cassava processing equipment. The cassava starch processing equipment includes dry sieve, paddle washing machine, rasper, centrifugal sieve, fine fiber sieve, desander, hydrocyclone station, peeler centrifuge, air flow flash dryer, packing machine, automatic control system and so on. The price of the equipment is further affected by the country of origin, material, processing capacity, and degree of automation.

The second factor affecting the cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria is cassava processing plant construction cost, which including the funds needed for land and plant construction. The factory is generally selected in the suburbs, close to the water source, with sufficient electricity, close to the cassava plantation and developed transportation, convenient for cassava processing and transportation.
Then the cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria is followed by the pre-operational funds. In the early stage of the cassava processing plant, it is necessary to invest in the purchase of cassava raw materials, as well as factory running capital. The factory running capital includes employee wages and water and electricity charge. The cassava processing plant requires at least one manager, procurement, marketing and accounting staff, as well as machine operators, logistics drivers, security personnel and unskilled workers.
The above is the main cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria. Whether it is cassava starch processing plant, cassava flour plant, garri or other processing plants, the cost of cassava processing plants basically needs to consider the above aspects.

The cassava processing project has low investment, low risk, high demand and high profit. It is a project worthy of investment in Nigeria. In recent years, the cassava processing project has attracted more and more attention from all walks of life.
In addition to the cost of setting up a cassava processing plant in Nigeria, investing in an cassava processing plant needs to consider the following five questions:
1. Raw materials: The raw material of cassava starch is cassava, which has a wide range of raw materials for cassava in Nigeria;
2. Land: planting cassava area or area that may be planted;
3. Funds: equipment funds, construction funds, etc.
4, Water: sufficient water source is the premise and guarantee for the development of cassava processing project
5, Gas: such as coal, gas, natural gas, electricity, oil, biomass, Doing Company can design equipment according to customer's need for gas
6. Electricity: The improvement of power infrastructure has greatly promoted the development and smooth development of the project.
DOING cassava processing plant projects
The demand for cassava and cassava processing products in global market is high and showing growing trend. Cassava chips have great demand in Europe, not only be used for feed, but also as important alcohol raw materials. Cassava starch has a wide range of applications in the textile, paper and chemical industries. The cassava flour is a perfect substitute for wheat flour for the production of bread. The Nigerian government is now wisely using cassava as a major economic growth point, encouraging cassava processing, setting up cassava processing plant, increasing cassava exports, bringing foreign exchange earnings to Nigeria and raising the economy.
