The bio-fortified cassava which is rich in vitamin A is becoming widespread in Africa, driven by increasing awareness of its health and nutrition benefits. Garri is not just a staple food in Nigeria but also a daily meal. Garri constitutes a daily meal to over 150 million people worldwide. It is a popular West African food. It could be compared to what potato flour is to the Westerners. It is even more versatile than that. It can be eaten as a snack (cassava flakes) in cold water on a very hot day, or cooked in hot water (cassava flour) to make a dough-like meal called “Eba.” You cannot claim to have eaten any West African food without having eaten Garri!
We also have other improved cultivars of Cassava such as TME 419 and TMS 30572
