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.
