A workshop intended to train cassava processing groups on High Quality Cassava Flour production and packaging was organised by the Cassava: Adding Value for Africa, phase II (CAVA II) under the Food Resource Institute in Ghana.
The training workshop was organised by CAVA II, Ghana in collaboration with Skill Development Fund and Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (SDF COTVET), one of the funding agencies that is supporting processing groups in Ghana. The objective of the training was to give the entrepreneurs a grounding in the production of cassava based products such as HQCF, garrri and agbelema. The participants were exposed to food safety and hygiene training; and product packaging.
CAVA II Ghana aims to scale-out and scale-up development of High Quality and Industrial Grade Cassava Flour value chains that will demand a total of 129,245 tons of fresh cassava roots from smallholder farmers in the country within five years.
