CASSAVA STARCH PRODUCTION IN NIGERIA: THE OPPORTUNITIES.

Cassava (Manihort Esculentus (Euphorbiacea)) is grown in all the states of the Federation with the current production level being about 45 million metric tones per annum; a figure expected to double by 2020. Nigeria is the leading cassava producer in the world, producing a third more than Brazil and almost double the production capacity of Thailand and Indonesia. Although it is the world leader in cassava production, 90% of the annual production in Nigeria is targeted for the domestic food market.

Cassava has the potential to industrialize Nigeria more than any other product if its potentials are properly harnessed, cassava will not only be a white gold but an alternative to oil as a non-oil foreign exchange earner and a key instrument for job creation and catalyst for development.

It is in realization of this fact that lead government to prioritize the cultivation , processing and export of cassava in the years past thereby leading to what is been referred to as the cassava revolution in Nigeria.

The business opportunities created by the cassava revolution has led to increased local investments in the cassava processing industry such as the cassava glucose syrup factory which requires 132,000 metric tones of fresh cassava tubers annually to produce 26,000 metric tones of glucose syrup. There is also the cassava processing factories for flour, and starch in various parts of the country. This has created a growing local demand for cassava tubers and I have written on the investment opportunity in the local supply of cassava tubers to industries in Nigeria. Interested investors should go through our archives to read more on this opportunity.

Starch is one of products that can be processed from cassava tubers and some of the machinery and equipment required for cassava starch production includes peelers/knives, cassava graters/granulators, pulp-sifters, dryers, pulverizers, and bagging machines

The major raw material required for the production of cassava starch though starch can be produced from maize, potato and other such products and the manufacturing process for cassava starch is as follows.

First the uprooted raw cassava tubers are peeled with the use of knives or peelers, then the peeled cassava is taken to the granulator. The function of the granulator is to mill the cassava into pulp. The pulp is then taken to pulp sifter. The pulp sifter is to separate the starch and chaff. It also extracts starch from the pulp. Attached to the pulp sifter is a machine that collects the extracted starch from the pulp. At this stage, the starch is coagulated and is still wet.

From here the coagulated starch is taken to the dryer. The temperature of the dryer must be that of the sun, between 27 c to 37 c, in order not to change the colour from the starch to black or brown. The starch is dried to 0.5 of its moisture content.

The next stage is pulverizing which is done by the pulverizer. The function of the pulverizer is to mill the dried starch to flour. After milling to powder, the next stage is packaging, which can done in sachets, sacks etc.

COWPEA {BEANS} DECORTICATING AND DE-STONING SERVICE IN NIGERIA.

Though much of the countries revenue is earned through royalty from oil and gas production, it is widely agreed that Agriculture has the potential of been the bedrock of the Nigerian economy, because of the abundance of good arable land, good climatic condition and cheap labour. However, in spite of the nations natural endowment in agricultural resources, the potential of the sector is yet to be fully realized due to the fact majority of the production is still done with crude implement which brings about a lot of drudgery and makes agriculture less attractive to the youth which constitutes over 60% of the population.

Nigeria is produces a lot of agricultural products which includes cowpea {beans}.

Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) is a grain legume largely grown in the northern part of Nigeria which has a savannah type of vegetation with light rainfall. Nigeria is the world’s largest producer of cowpea, as it produces over 2.7 million metric tones of cowpeas with an average yield per hectare of 417 kg. It produces the white and brown varieties.

One major achievement of the present civilian administration in Nigeria in the past eleven (11) years has been the growth of middle class which has been witnessed in the country. These growths continues to drive the increasing social and health awareness of the need for hygienically well prepared foods required for good quality living standard of the people.

This much has continued to create the demand for better processed or decorticated cowpea {bean} seed required for human consumption. Decortication is a process of removing the husk covering the seed of a plant, in this case cowpea seed. Groundnut is another agricultural produce that requires decortication.

After the product has been decorticated, they are taken to the de-stoning machine to remove the stones, after which they would be ready for packing and sale in the market.

In terms in of cost, cowpea presents one the best option for the nation to meet her protein need. Nigeria, with a population of about 150 million people is grossly underprovided with an essential food component, protein. For example, data from the FOS, CBN, and FAO indicate that from cattle, less than 2kg of beef is available to an average Nigerian per year and just mere 4kg of eggs per annum is available to each Nigerian. In fact, milk production has been nose diving or at best has remained constant since 1994.This scenario is compounded more so when  the volume of  egg supply is very low, being  10.56g per person per day as compared with the usual recommendation that an egg should be consumed by an adult per day.

Establishing a cowpea decorticating and de-stone services in agricultural is no doubt a viable business and would bring us closer to meeting our protein demands.

COWPEA {BEANS} FLOUR PRODUCTION AND PROCESSING IN NIGERIA.

Cowpea is an important source of protein in both urban and rural Nigeria; not surprising, therefore, is also the fact that Nigeria is also the largest producer and consumer of cowpea in all of Africa. More than 8 million hectares of cowpea are grown in West and Central Africa. Nigeria is the largest producer with 4 million ha, followed by Niger, 3 million ha. Other producers are Mali, Burkina Faso and Senegal.

The cowpea grain contains about 25% protein, and 64% carbohydrate and its potential in the alleviation of malnutrition among resource poor farmers is inestimable.

They are considered dual purpose because they provide grains for human consumption while also providing fodder for livestock.

One major achievement of the present civilian administration in Nigeria in the past twelve (12) years as been the growth of middle class which has been witnessed in the country. These growths continues to drive the increasing social and sanitary awareness of the need for hygienic and good quality processed food coupled with the geometrically exploding population and continued rural-urban drift continues to fuel the demand for cowpea flour in the country.

Cowpea flour is used in the preparation of akara (fried cowpea paste), danwake (cowpea dumplings) and moin-moin (steamed cowpea paste) and surely provides working mother the opportunity to prepare this favorite meal with the comfort it provides.

The various which the product the product can be put to coupled with the nutrition and medicinal effects of cowpea, makes cowpea flour a high soughted after product. Cowpea flour is a cheap source of protein and carbohydrate and the product can be marketed through market women, food canteens, hotels and supermarkets.

The major raw material required for production is the cowpea seed which can be sourced mainly from the northern part of the country due to the climatic condition of the area. Some of the cowpea producing states in Nigeria include Kano, Kaduna, Gombe, Zamfara etc.

Some of the machinery and equipment required for plantain flour production includes grinders, sieves, packaging machine and weighing scales.

The product would be packaged in plastic bags of different sizes targeting different segments of the market.

To sell beans flour in Nigeria or even export the product abroad, the investor would have to register with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration Control (NAFDAC) in Nigeria and at such the promoters would have to ensure that the production meets good quality standard by ensuring stringent and hygienic condition prevail at the production plant.

The promoters would also have to register with the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) when the product is to be exported.

CRAYFISH PROCESSING AND PACKAGING FOR PROFIT IN NIGERIA.

Crayfish, a crustacean of higher order found in fresh water is a very popular spice in the tropics where they are used in the preparation of food. It is estimated that about 12,000 MT of crayfish is produced annually in Nigeria. Though the artificial rearing and production of shrimps{ crayfish} in Nigeria is not common is compared to the production of fish, processing and packaging of shrimps { crayfish} is gaining ground because of the advantage it presents to most house wives in Nigeria.

In this era of growing middle class in the country, processed crayfish comes in handy to very busy housewives who combines their roles as mothers and workers and who scarcely have enough time to engage in daily grinding of the crayfish they need. Single parents especially those in the working class also fall into the category.

The major raw material is required for production is crayfish and this can be sourced in abundance from Akwa – Ibom and Cross rivers states respectively. Nylon wrapping, cardboard cartons and the grinding machine, cutting and sealing machine, stapling machine and weighing scale are the other materials required for production.

Crayfish enjoys wide patronage locally from operators of bukateria, hotel and restaurants. The growing population of over 140,000,000 people also deepens the market for processed crayfish in Nigeria.

Processed crayfish also has market export market especially in markets with high concentration of people from the tropics

The processing technology is relatively simple and involves the following: sorting, crushing and grinding, weighing and packing. Due to the scale of the business about four persons would be required in the business with the following function purchase, sorting & grinding, weighing & packaging and marketing. Other agricultural produce that can be processed and packaged just like crayfish are onion, pepper, tomato, ogbono etc.

The return on this project is quite attractive and impressive that it would be difficult for any financial institution especially micro- finance banks with discerning credit officers to turn down any loan request for funding this project. Promoters of this venture will also feel comfortable to release their hard earned money to finance this project.

The successful implementation of this project begins with the preparation of detailed and bankable feasibility study report to ascertain the actual cost/benefit status of the project. Company registration with Corporate Affairs Commission, Nigeria Export Promotion Council, Standard Organization of Nigeria/National Food, Drug Administration and Control is also required.
