Purchase of fresh cassava roots and drying cost are the highest cost elements in the processing of HQCF (Figure 3). These elements often represent 25-50% of the total cost of producing HQCF in many African countries.

Efforts to reduce these costs therefore would contribute immensely to making HQCF more price competitive against its major rivals.
