Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday praised Fiji’s state of the art biscuit manufacturer – Punjas Biscuit Limited for diverging into other biscuits.

Mr Bainimarama officially launched two new ranges of Punjas biscuits at their headquarters in Lautoka on Friday.

Punjas Biscuit Limited director Rajesh Punjas said: “We have launched two new products from Punjas Biscuits which are Punjas Milk Arrowroot and Punjas Scotch Finger.”

He said the group was honoured to have the presence of the Prime Minister to give his blessings and to launch the new products from the Punjas Biscuits portfolio.

“We have used the finest ingredients to bake Punjas Milk Arrowroot and Punjas Scotch Finger and you will find these biscuits to be simply delicious,” Mr Punja added.

He said tea time biscuit joins Punjas flagship breakfast crackers, which hit the market in mid-December and is gaining popularity in the country and across the pacific.

He said the two biscuits have been specially formulated by international consultants working closely with Punjas research and development team.

According to Mr Punja, the Punjas Milk Arrowroot was first introduced in the late 1800s.

“It is easily digestible which is why they are often mashed up with liquid and fed babies.

Scotch fingers biscuits, he said was considered Australians most popular plain sweet biscuit, after the recipe was reportedly brought down from Scotland in the mid 1800’s.

“This new range of milk arrowroot and scotch finger will certainly add to the range and flavours that people have come to expect from Punjas,” he said.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister opened the $25 million-biscuit factory in Navutu, Lautoka last December.
