But if you want to build a standard factory and process garri at a large scale, machines are necessary.

What machines are needed for garri production?

After cassava roots are harvested from the field, a cleaning and washing machine is used to remove impurities. And then cassava peeling machine can remove the first and second layers of tubers. After that, put the peeled cassava into a grater machine for crushing. Then we can get cassava mash. Put cassava mash into bags for fermentation for 2-3 days.
