Coconut processing mill operations on hold

Publish date/time: 07/02/2011 [07:24]

With talks still underway to import copra from neighboring Pacific islands, a coconut processing mill has put its operations on hold.

Copra Millers of Fiji board chairman, Ilisoni Taoba has revealed to Fijivillage that the Punjas Copra mill in Lautoka has stopped operation and as a result, the mill in Savusavu is the only one open at the moment.

According to Taoba, the country is going through a copra shortage and this has affected the supply of coconut oil commercially.

Fijivillage contacted the mill in Lautoka, and they revealed that their workers have been absorbed into other company operations as they await the current shortage to be resolved.

The bilateral talks are currently being held between the Fiji and Kiribati Governments to import coconut to supply to the mills in Fiji.
