On March 22-24, 2018, Cameroonian President Biya's state visit to China expressed his high endorsement of President Xi Jinping's concept of the human community and the "One Belt, One Road" initiative. After the leaders of China and Cameroon officially signed the "One Belt, One Road" cooperation document on August 31, 18, China will strengthen cooperation in the field of infrastructure construction in Cameroon and help Cameroon promote industrialization and modernization.
The geological features and culture of Cameroon's diversity have a reputation of "small Africa" and its natural geography is quite rich. Cameroon is located in the tropics. The national average temperature is 24 °C. As a highly adaptable crop, cassava is known as the "King of Starch" and is the lifeline of African people. It is a particularly important staple food for poor farmers and a bioenergy crop with great development potential.
The annual global production of cassava roots is about 230 million tons, half of which is produced in the African continent. The main use of cassava is for food and forage. Root starch is one of the main starch raw materials in the industry. In the fermentation industry, tapioca starch or dried tablets can be made into alcohol, citric acid, glutamic acid, lysine, and the like. These products are used in food, beverage, medicine, textile (dyeing) and other aspects. At the same time, cassava is also an energy plant with great development potential and is one of the important pillars of the development of biomass energy industry.
Along with Cameroon's visit to China, there are also local entrepreneurs who aim to purchase a complete set of cassava flour equipment
or cassava flour processing equipment
. They first searched for the Goodway relatedcassava flour processing equipmenton the platform of Alibaba International Station and sent an inquiry to get an initial understanding of equipment processing information. The close exchanges in the early stage laid the foundation for future friendly cooperation. With the help of Cameroon's visit to China, the West African customers came to China and went to the Goodway Machinery Manufacturing Plant in Nanyang Fangcheng, Henan Province on April 21 for a site visit.
The customer operates a food processing company in Cameroon, focusing on food safety and hygiene and the realization of equipment functions. In particular, it is required that the equipment materials should be wear-resistant and durable, and the processing capacity can be achieved in actual processing. Taking into account the details of equipment operating costs, processing technology, energy consumption, water consumption and power consumption, through the guidance of Gu Dewei staff, they finally chose a complete powder (flour) processing equipment for processing 3-4 tons of cassava raw materials. . The overall stainless steel material is sturdy and durable, with excellent configuration, high production efficiency and good finished product quality.
After the two parties signed the contract, after more than three months of custom equipment manufacturing cycle, the equipment was shipped to Qingdao International Port on August 7, 2018, and sent to Cameroon by sea.
The goods have arrived at the destination port on October 7, 2018. The customer expressed the hope that the overall installation of the equipment will be completed before the end of the year. Recently, Goodway has sent installation personnel to Cameroon to complete the installation and commissioning of the equipment in the later period to ensure that the equipment can operate normally and be delivered as soon as possible.
