What are the cassava consumption type?

End-uses of cassava range from basic subsistence consumption to the various industrial uses. The status of cassava industrial development in the countries of focus with subsistence consumption, grows into commercialization, and peaks at industrialization as below:

Subsistence of cassava consumption:

a.Production for home consumption, including on-farm processing.

b.Local/informal processing of traditional foods for home use or sale on local markets.

Commercialization of cassava consumption:

a.On-farm or local processing with limited value addition (e.g., drying, chipping for animal feed or export).

b.Formal processing of traditional foods (packaged & branded).

c.Small-scale baking & confectionary.

Industrialization of cassava consumption:

a.Formal and large-scale processing into HQCF (High Quality Cassava Flour), starch & its derivatives, and ethanol.

b.End-use of products in industrial processing in sectors like food & beverage (including brewing), pharmaceutical, personal care, etc.

c.In all three countries of focus, cassava is consumed widely as a staple food. It is commonly processed into traditional products in rural areas using small-scale processing equipment and consumed by farm households or sold informally in local markets.

In many places cassava and certain basic by-products (including traditional foods) have begun to be traded as commercial goods. Products include dried cassava chips and semi-formally processed traditional food products (which can be packaged/ branded). Cassava chips—as a more stable intermediary product—have myriad uses, and the global market for cassava (as introduced in Section 3.1 above) primarily trades in chips. Domestically, chips are often sold to animal feed processors. As the leading importer of cassava chips, China primarily uses the product to produce bio-ethanol.

Industrial cassava includes formal and large-scale processing into high-quality cassava flour, starch & its derivatives, and ethanol. These products have many end-uses across sectors, though food & beverage is the largest source of demand for such products.
