The University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and the Bernegal Foundation have signed a collaboration agreement for the development of a research project for a pilot plant for portable mills in Gofio.
This Friday, November 29, an agreement was signed between our Bernegal Foundation and the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria for the creation of a network of mills that will allow the production of gofio in Mozambique. Specifically, it is a research agreement for the development of a pilot mill for portable structures that will allow the production of millet cereal flour (Gofio) in Mozambique.
The signing of this collaboration agreement with the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria represents a vital support for the implementation of one of our main projects: creating a self-sufficient structure and contributing to the social development of the area.
With this step we continue with one of our main initiatives as a Non-Governmental Organization: contribute to social, environmental and economic improvement, in addition to spreading our Canarian culture at a socio-economic level.
The pilot plant is estimated to have a production of 1000 kilos per day and will be implemented in the Zambezi river valley in Mozambique according to the agreement we have reached with the country’s government, it is a region of more than 8 million inhabitants .
José Jaime Sadhwani, will be the director who will be in charge of coordinating the research by the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, will have as participants several students within what will be their Final Degree Projects.
