Aninver has been appointed preferred bidder to undertake a feasibility study for the setting up of a large-scale cashew processing plant in Western Province of Zambia. The project is part of the Cashew Infrastructure Development Project (CIDP), which is being implemented by the Government of the Republic of Zambia, through the Ministry of Agriculture, in partnership with the African Development Bank.
The project represents another milestone in the expansion of Aninver's footprint in Africa as it is the first project the firm will develop in Zambia.
The main purpose of the study is to conduct an in-depth feasibility study integrating analysis of technical, commercial, institutional, financial, economic, social and environmental aspects of viability analysis of the cashew value chain and to justify the need for a large scale commercial processing plant for cashew nuts in Western Province. The consultancy shall deliver as its key output, a bankable document for soliciting public/private sector financing for a large-scale cashew processing plant. The proposed large-scale cashew processing plant is expected to enhance value addition through agro-processing and thereby contribute to the goal of industrial development.
The expected total duration of the study is 3 months.
