Garri is a kind of dry, crispy, creamy-white products made from cassava, which is widely consumed in Africa. It is estimated that 70% of the cassava in Nigeria is processed into garri. As a result, garri is the most commonly traded cassava product. Normally the produced dry granular garri can be stored for more than six month.
Process of making garri
But how to make garri from cassava tubers in garri processing factory? The garri production porcess is as below:
1. Cleaning and washing section
Cleaning and washing cassava is first step of how to make garri. The impurities attached on cassava is removed to ensure the quality of garri.
2. Cassava washing and peeling section
In garri processing factory, peeling and washing process is done by mechanical cassava peeling machine. A high efficient cassava peeler can peel off most of peels of cassava and make the grating easier.

3. Cassava grating section
Then using a cassava grater to grate peeled cassava to obtain uniformly smooth pulp. The smoothness of the pulp determines the quality, yield and market value of the finished garri.
4. Fermenting section
Then put grated cassava pulp into clean sacks and tie them. Then put them in a fermenting trough for 2 ~ 4 days. Here we need to ensure all the sacks do no contact with soil or dirts that may contaminate the cassava mash. The fermentation time varies from country to country. But generally the fermentation should not be less than 2 days.
5. Pressing for dewatering garri
Then put the fermented mash in sacks into a hydraulic press, pressing it to remove as much water as possible. Pressing is completed when water is no longer dripping from the sacks.
6.Cake breaking and frying section
To ensure the fineness of produced garri, a hammer mill is needed in garri processing factory for breaking dewatered garri cakes. Then use an automatic garri fryer to dry wet garri. To ensure garri not be contaminated, a garri fryer is normally made of stainless steel and with firewood or gas as the heat source.
