  • Description

    THE IVORY COAST'S FOOD RESEARCH CENTRE, ITIPAT, IN ABIDJAN, WHICH WAS FOUNDED ONLY THREE YEARS AGO, IS ALREADY PRODUCING COMMERCIAL IDEAS. SO FAR, 15 MARKETABLE PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED, AND OTHERS ARE ON THE WAY.

    ITIPAT WAS SET UP WITH THE HELP OF FUNDS FROM THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT. THE IVORY COAST PAYS FRENCH EXPERTS AND THE OPERATION COST OF THE ESTABLISHMENT, AND IN RETURN GETS ABSOLUTE RIGHTS TO ALL PATENTS.

    ONCE A PRODUCT HAS BEEN REFINED, ITIPAT THEN HANDS IT OVER TO INDUSTRY, EITHER LOCALLY OR ABROAD, WHICH PRODUCES IT (THREE MANUFACTURING PLANTS WILL BE READY IN THE IVORY COAST ITSELF NEXT YEAR.)
    AMONG THE THINGS SO FAR PRODUCED ARE INSTANT YAMS -- DEHYDRATED AND PRECOOKED IN POWDER FORM, ENABLING THEM TO BE KEPT FOR UP TO FOUR YEARS -- BABY FOODS MADE FROM PROCESSED BANANAS, CATTLE FOODS FROM BANANA SKINS AND NUT SHELLS, AND -- ONE OF THE MORE STRIKING SUCCESSES -- COLA SYRUP, A NUT EXTRACT USED AS A PICK-ME-UP.

    ITITPAT USES 100 MACHINES IN ITS WORK, AND HAS TWO LABORATORIES.
