Vo’s gari production factories to soon be operational

(Togo First) - In the next few days, the five modern cassava flour (gari) production units projected in the Vo prefecture will be operational. The announcement was made last week by the Shared-risk Agricultural Financing Incentive Mechanism (MIFA) which is behind the project. 

The gari factories in the VO prefecture will soon be operational. The machines have finally arrived and are being installed in the five chosen sites in the prefecture,” said an official. 

The project, it should be noted was announced after President Gnassingbé visited the concerned prefecture in November 2019. 

According to the ministry of agriculture, the facilities should boost the agricultural processing capacity of cassava in the country and improve food security subsequently. 

At the moment, Togo produces around 900,000 tons of cassava per year and it is one of the crops the country processes most. Every year, however, there is a surplus of nearly 400,000 t.
