1. Business Plan Summary
The company will work with farmers especially in the Irrawaddy, Bago and Southerb Shan areas. The potential number of farmers is likely to be 15-20,000 when in full production, but it might or might not be with the same farmers each year. The company has the option, depending on circumstances, of having the product delivered to a central site or collected from the farm gate.
The company is expecting to diversify into other crops if they are synergistic with cassava. A University will be established within the area to provide a full educational system for rural communities including in all aspects of agriculture.
High quality cassava flour and starch is increasingly becoming an important products as the flour is gluten free which demands a premium pricing.
The minimal processing on or off the farm will be chipping and drying cassava plants to produce cassava chips which can be traded and exported. The financial payment will depend on the degree of processing, volume and quality.
Tint Tint Myanmar Agriculture believes it is in the farmers and country's best interest to further process the roots to flour or starch ie add value, to substantially increase the export value of the crop. The company is working to secure processing facilities. This is likely to be of European origin. There will be a need to train staff to run and maintain the specialized processing facilities.
