However, in recent years, with the development of internationalization and the improvement of people's living standards, the cassava processing business in Nigeria is booming and increasingly popular.

Not only that, in recent years, Nigeria has cooperated with China, Denmark, the United States and other countries to establish a cassava processing center to produce cassava flour, cassava starch, sweeteners, alcohol and other products through cassava processing business. At the same time, the introduction of cassava processing equipment has enabled the production scale of cassava to continue to expand, and the cassava processing business in Nigeria has become more and more industrialized.

Agriculture in Nigeria is dominated by small farmers. Due to the lack of modern practical knowledge and insufficient funds, they could not buy equipment with low prices and high efficiency. As the main manufacturer of cassava processing equipment, Doing Company can provide cassava processing equipment for processing cassava starch, cassava flour, garri and cassava chips. DOING process technology has reached the advanced level in Europe, and the equipment price is less than 40% in Europe. It is cost-effective and has excellent performance. It is a good choice for those who want to carry on cassava processing business in Nigeria.

It is learned that Nigeria's annual investment in food imports exceeds 11 billion US dollars. The growing food demand in Nigeria, with such a large population, will require large-scale mechanized farming and industrial development of cassava processing business in Nigeria to address the hunger challenge. Nigeria is working with other countries to achieve a doubling of cassava production by 2050 and a possible food crisis in response to population growth. As a traditional staple food in the African region, cassava and cassava processing business in Nigeria can effectively guarantee future food security problems in Nigeria by establishing an efficient industrial chain of cassava processing business.
