Written By : Colin Bishop Suva. The interim regime is proudly stating that Fiji will be self-sufficient in dairy products by 2017 but the reality is that this will not happen unless there is overseas expertise and investment in the industry.
The one bright spot in the current industry is Dairy Farms Fiji with New Zealand Investment at a scale that has an effect on the industry.
This was an SDL-driven initiative on the old Viti Corps land at Navua. However I have been sent an email from a friend in Auckland with the board meeting record of DFF for May 2008 showing they wish to quit Fiji.
This has been reinforced by an advertisment in NZ for the sale of DFF. The advertisement can be seen on the Wrightson Real Estate website. Keyword Fiji. So much for a developing industry.
