The Rarawai Penang Cane Producers Association is amending the association’s constitution for better governance and service delivery.
This follows the non-conformities identified in an unannounced audit conducted the past month by Flo Cert.
This audit had ruled out the dismissal of eight sector/board delegates and a number of non-compliances were also identified.
Association executive manager, Sanjina Narain, said the main area of non-compliance was in regards to their constitution, and the need to clarify clauses around the roles and responsibilities of governance system.
“The association is working with all three districts which include Rarawai, Penang and Tavua on the constitutional review process in advance of the general assembly,” she said.
“After receiving the audit report from the certification FLO CERT, the association has started to improve the dialogue amongst our members of the General Assembly.”
Ms Narain said now the board members are working collectively to put the organisation first and unanimously agreeing on the next steps in order to improve their governance system and bring the organisation into full compliance with the Fairtrade Standards.
“As a result, the eight dismissed board/sector delegates of Vararu, Koronubu, Mota, Varoko, Rarawai, Ellington 2, Malau and Nanuku have been reinstated,” she said.
“A general assembly was held with all the board members to confirm that the differences in the association have been fully resolved.”
