Maker of cassava shortbread to represent Seychelles at South Africa business competition
Seychellois female entrepreneur Claudette Albert will represent the island nation at the FemBioBiz competition in South Africa next month after winning the local competition.
After a day of presentation of projects by eight women from Seychelles and Mauritius last week, Albert came out the winner with the cassava shortbread biscuit.
“My project started in 2015 after a COMESA (Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa) workshop for value addition of local products. I did a lot of research in the initial years and the final product was done at the STA’s (Seychelles Tourism Academy) internationally certified kitchen,” said Albert.
