TAAT Cassava Compact establishes two cassava processing factories in Togo
The TAAT Cassava Compact, in partnership with the Togo Presidential Initiative on Cassava and the Togo Ministry of Agriculture, has established two commercial processing factories in two agripoles in Togo—the Notse processing factory and New Life service at Ahosoume. The collaboration targets the production of more foods, exposing the processors to modern processing machines, and creating employment opportunities for youth and women.
In 2020, the Cassava Compact donated two sets of processing machines to establish the processing factories as part of the agreement made during the project launch in 2018. The Cassava compact team comprising IITA Fabrication Consultant Thierno Diallo, IITA Postharvest Specialist Peter Kolawole, and Data Analyst Adegoke Gafar visited the sites to complete the installation and final training for the beneficiaries of the processing factories.
