How garri is produced?

Garri is produced from fresh cassava roots using washing and peeling, crushing, fermentation, dehydration, frying, and sieving. In the beginning, people do all the work by hand. Even now, there are lots of factories in Nigeria that use traditional ways and labor works to do garri production. It is ok to produce garri manually if the capacity is small. But if you want to build a standard factory and produce 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. 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. Then fermented cassava by a hydraulic presser machine. Following that, use a crusher machine to crush cassava into small pieces. Finally put cassava particles into the fryer machine and sieve coarse flour to get high quality garri.
