Firm taps DA for cassava powder
by DA release

Nestle Philippines is looking for a local supplier of cassava powder for its beverage products.

Agriculture Sec. Emmanuel F. Piñol said the country’s farmers would have to produce about 70,000 tons a year to “fill up the requirements of Nestle.”

The Scretary met with Nestle Philippines Chief Executive Officer Jacques Reber, who called on him to seek a partnership on the production of cassava powder by farmers across the country.

The cassava powder will supply the requirements of Nestle’s Milo Malt Plant in Lipa, Batangas, which is expected to go into operation in June 2018.

“To make this plant successful, we will be needing 62 tons of cassava powder per day for us to produce Milo products,” Reber said.

He said the Philippines is “the leading Milo consumer in the market” next to Malaysia.

Cassava farmers produce anywhere from 30 to 40 metric tons per hectare, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority, which said cassava production increased by 1.5 percent from January to March 2017.

Piñol said the department will continue its effort to improve cassava production to meet the demand for the product in the international market.

The establishment of processing facility is important in securing a big volume of cassava produced every year, he said.

Nestle Philippines committed to help in the establishment of a cassava processing facility for farmers.
