A new Agro-Marketing Authority Office is now open in Savusavu to facilitate the purchase and sale of agro-produce for rural communities in Vanua Levu.
Assistant Agriculture Minister, Viam Pillay, says the new office should form the catalyst to encourage farmers and fishermen in the Northern division to increase production and raise their income and livelihood.
“Let me also state that having an established office alone may not suffice to enhancing income levels of our rural farmers and fishermen and meet our ever increasing local and export market demands. The key is to maintain a consistent supply of high quality agriculture and fisheries products.”
The new office located at Valeci – will be the primary AMA Collection Centre for the whole of Vanua Levu.
There are also plans to construct another collection center in Dama, Bua.
