Four Fijian exporters are showcasing their products at the four-day Fine Food 2014 which started at the Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Centre, Australia, yesterday.

Pleass Global, Foods Pacific, Pacific Seaweeds and Adi Chocolate are hosted by Pacific Islands Trade & Invest to showcase their products.

Pacific Islands Trade & Invest is the leading regional export facilitation, investment and tourism promotion agency.

Fine Food is Australia’s largest food and beverage trade show where the exhibitors get to meet potential Australian and international buyers under one roof.

There are three companies from Vanuatu and one each from Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Niue and one coconut oil company that sources from across the Pacific.

Pacific Island Trade and Invest export services manager, Jeremy Grennell, said: “It is the fourth year we have attended Fine Food and momentum and focus builds every year.

“We are looking forward to exhibiting some premium niche products from the Pacific this week to local and international buyers as well as telling them the story behind each of these products.”

Mr Grennell said for many participants, this is one of the biggest platforms on which to showcase their wares.

“Products being exhibited illustrate the diversity of premium food and beverage coming out of the region,” he said.

“From sea grapes, bottled water and chocolate sourced from Fiji, honey from Vanuatu to coffee from Papua New Guinea all in premium packaging to attract the discerning buyer.”
