South West : CDC Seek New Ways To Double Production

Top management staff of the agro-industrial giant met recently in its Limbe based head office to bra

The management of the Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC) meeting in Limbe on December 15, 2017 is seeking ways of doubling the production of its three principal produce. These are rubber, banana and palm oil with its related by-products. The General Manager of CDC, Franklin Ngoni Njie said that there is a national palm oil deficit of more than 1,000 tons. He also estimated that they could double CDC rubber production from the present 18, 000 tons to 36, 000 tons. Another worry he brought forward without stating figures is the low productivity in the Banana sector. To all these, Franklin Ngoni Njie said that CDC has succeeded in carving out a niche for itself in the market because of its quality products. As such if the corporation doubles its production, everything will be sold. The purpose of the meeting was to identify ways of realising the target of doubling production in 2018 taking into consideration the existing constraints.

All the three Managers of Group Banana, Rubber and Palm Oil took to the rostrum elucidating their colleagues on what specifically need to be done to double production in each of the sectors. Kuve Donald Ekema, Group Manager of Rubber said their target for next year is what management has set. The Group Banana Manager on his part said his sector has an additional 400 hectares of land to be planted next year.  On the shortage of electricity that affects the irrigation of banana, the General Manager disclosed that hundreds of millions have been invested in power generators to bridge the absence of power supply. The conference held on the theme, “Managing for Results in CDC. Dream or Reality?” also saw the participation of Area Managers and Estate Managers.

Composed of nearly 50 per cent healthy fats and 30 per cent protein, Egusi is a great dietary supplement that can be a staple in a vegetarian diet. Rich in protein, fat, and vitamins, its benefits can be combined as follows; maintain healthy teeth, maintain healthy bone, helps in smooth digestion, prevents diarrhea and a host of others. In Yaounde like in most parts of the country egusi is an expensive commodity. A measuring glass in Yaounde is sold at FCFA 500. This quantity which usually sells at FCFA 300 cannot be gotten below FCFA 500 at this season. Vendors do not deliberate on its prices as could be done with other commodities.


The starchy tuberous root crop once very common, now almost disappearing due to the abusive and unsustainable use of chemicals is not as affordable as before in markets within Yaounde as recounted by buyers. The minimum amount for cocoyam is FCFA 1.000 in the Acacias market which is quite expensive for some house wives. Traders noted the food item is so scarce that even sellers find it hard to locate farmers who can sell in wholesale. A basin of cocoyam ranges from FCFA 10.000 and above. This commodity is used in cooking dishes like ekwang, kwacoco and could also serve as complement to other dishes.
