Several yeas ago, when it comes to cassava flour processing industry, it maybe a grunt work. Women in the village used to pound the cassava by hands to make flour in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It usually spends 2 weeks making cassava flour by traditional ways. Now it takes about 5 days. And because the final cassava flour is whiter, drier and more hygienic, the price is higher.

At present, with the encouragement of the local government, more and more investors start to invest small or big scale high quality cassava flour processing factories. The new processing units are making things easier and more cost-effective.

If it is a small scale cassava flour processing factory, after the harvest, villagers peel and clean the cassava, then put them into the machine so cassava can be sliced into micro-chips. After going through the cassava flour processing machines, the micro-chips are soaked in clean water and removed some toxins. Finally the micro-chips will be dried in the sun.
