Asita Chand, the director of Fastkill Pest Health and Hygiene Services, through her dedication and commitment, continues to achieve greater success.

Ms Chand recently won the Pest Manager of the Year Award organised by the Australian Environmental Pest Managers Association in Gold Coast.

The annual event is aimed to recognise business excellence in pest management.

Ms Chand won the Pest Managers Award 2015 in the Pacific Island category which is the first for anyone from Fiji.

She has also won the Aspiring Woman of the Year in the Women in Business awards in 2013 to add to her list of success.

The local business woman runs the company with her proud husband Vinay Chand.

Mr Chand said: “As members of Australian Environmental Pest Managers Association, we have been continuously attending the conference and awards ceremony annually.

“As an ISO and HACCP certified company and a 100 per cent Fijian owned company, we decided to nominate ourselves in 2012, 2013 and 2015.

“We have won accordingly, with the biggest being in 2015 categorised as pest manager of the year Pacific Islands, a very first in Fiji.”

He added the achievement uplifts the pest management industry in Fiji nationally and regionally especially as a locally-owned company.

“We are proud of her achievement and she has shown motivation to women to excel in all kinds of field as she has proved in achieving this award in a male dominated field,” Mr Chand said.
