Tii Ki Komi Cassava Commercial Growers
Strengthening rural development through cassava production and processing
Tii Ki Komi Cassava Commercial Growers (TCCG) sources fresh cassava from local farmers and processes them into chips, flour and peels of highly competitive price and quality. The company provides training on agronomic practices to enhance cassava post-harvest handling and production of organic manure.
Products are currently sold for household consumption and to breweries, and the innovative production and sale of cassava peels as animal feed has developed new market opportunities. The enterprise plans to expand in scale and to enter local and foreign markets.
Tii Ki Komi Cassava Commercial Growers produces and processes cassava, is in charge of distribution and sales, and trains employees and farmers.
Private Sector Foundation Uganda, a governmental agency, has trained employees in quality control and standards, food certification, value addition, post-harvest handling and entrepreneurship.
Food and Agriculture Organisation supplied 50 bags of high-quality cassava cuttings to be multiplied and distributed to affiliated farmers.
