The purpose of this project was to contribute to improved sustainable livelihoods and better levels of income for cassava farmers and processors in rural areas by expanding the range of market opportunities available for cassava-based products, and by promoting use of cassava by industry. Outcomes of the project include delivery of validated cost effective technologies for the production of high quality cassava flour for use in selected bakery products and plywood glue, sugar syrups for food use, industrial alcohol for the chemical industry and a complete paperboard adhesive for the cardboard packaging industry.
