Brewery considers using cassava in beer production
 
Maputo, 7 Sept (AIM) - The brewery in the northern province of Nampula, owned by CDM, the local subsidiary of South African Breweries, is considering using locally grown cassava in beer production, to reduce the financial burden arising from the import of raw materials.

Cited in the Maputo daily "Noticias", the Nampula Provincial Director of Agriculture, Jose Varimelo, said that his institution and the brewery have evaluated the capabilities of cassava production in Nampula and are currently searching for producers capable of supplying this raw material in large quantities.

According to him, Nampula produces on average over four million tonnes of cassava per year, mostly for household consumption.

The production of beer not only uses barley and hops, but also starch powder that can be extracted from cassava.

The Nampula brewery was built at a cost of over $50 million, and began operating earlier this year. It produces 480,000 hectolitres of beer per year.
