President, Federation of Agricultural Commodity Association of Nigeria, FACAN, Victor Iyama says millers’ penchant for wheat in bread production, continue to militate against realisation of calls for cassava bread production in Nigeria.

Iyama today today in Abuja that in spite of the sustained campaigns by the association to discourage wheat importation, millers had remained adamant.

He said that stakeholders still showed lack of interest in the use of cassava flour for bread production.

Iyama noted that the campaign over the years had been for bakers to include only 10 per cent of cassava flour to their bread recipe to discourage importation of wheat.
