Cassava exporters prefer farms that are within a range of 50 km from the factories, as farms further away than this will necessitate the assistance of middlemen.

Exporter/processing companies consider the distance of farmers to the factories when buying fresh supplies. Farms with distance of at most 50 km from the factories are highly preferred. Farther than this they will have to source their cassava not from farmers but from middlemen (collectors) who can secure more volume to make the transportation cost worth it.
