Cassava is a staple food in Africa and many also depend on it for their livelihoods. In Côte d’Ivoire, the cassava we buy goes to our factory near the capital, Abidjan, where it is used to produce Maggi bouillon cubes, with added minerals and vitamins. Maggi cubes are widely used by local people to enrich and flavour recipes, including the cassava dishes that are an important part of the diet.
