nigeria is the world's largest producers of yams with over six million metric tones per annum of this output; only about 5% is put into the industrial use by way chips and flour, almost all the states in nigeria grow yams.
the raw materials needed are wet yam tubers. these are obtainable from farms cultivated by plantations, small holders and co-operative farmers. there is abundant yam grown in this country.
yam flour is a cherished delicacy among africans and other parts of the world.
its processing increases its shelf life, adds value to the tuber (from where it is processed) before being exported to enhance its economic value, reduces waste and cuts down the cost of transporting the product to longer distances compared with the heavy wet tubers that are unprocessed. the fact that this can be preserved helps to stabilize prices during off harvest season.
