This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Summary for Project titles: R6332: Improved cassava processing
technology for vulnerable households in Tanzania and R6639: Improved
cassava utilisation in Tanzania.
New processing technologies are enabling resource-poor cassava growers
in sub-Saharan Africa to produce popular products for the market. They
are selling high quality cassava flour and chips at a range of outlets
in Tanzania, Madagascar, Zambia, Uganda and Mozambique. Processing
equipment, produced locally at low cost, is reducing drudgery and credit
schemes are allowing the cassava processors to get their businesses off
the ground. Manuals and participatory methods are helping to spread the
use of the new technology, monitor adoption and link cassava processors
