Garri is the staple food in Nigeria and many other cassava-growing countries in Africa. Only in Nigeria, the population is almost 150 million. The large population brings more profit. The profit is far beyond your imagination. So the answer is obvious, the garri business is profitable.

1. Food is a basic human need. Garri is an essential food that people need to eat every day in Africa. Just like the rice or wheat flour products that people in most areas eat. The Nigerian market shows that garri can be in the range of $600 to $800 / ton, and if people produce the higher quality of garri, they can sell it for a higher price.


Our garri processing machine in DOING company can process 3 tons of cassava into 1 ton garri, so if we produce 1 ton cassava, we can make profit within 1 ton as follows:
