The thriving Tuduu Wada Rice Processors Women’s Cooperative use false bottom parboiling machinery provided by the IFAD-supported Value Chain Development Project (VCDP) to produce and market quality parboiled rice. In November of 2017, the VCDP provided the women with mechanized processing equipment and introduced the innovative “false bottom” parboiling technology to help rice processors like Tuduu Wada boost the quality, competitiveness and market value of their rice. The new technology has enabled the women to work more efficiently and increase their daily production from one ton per day up to ten, twenty, even thirty tons. The cooperative is helping to meet Nigeria’s growing appetite for nice by providing quality, nutritious parboiled white rice. Business is so good that the women are using profits to expand their facility with additional milling houses and machinery, proving that the project is already sustainable.
