Meeting high consumer demands is a problem for Naboro Corrections Complex, says Fiji Corrections Commissioner Lieutenant-Colonel Ifereimi Vasu.
“These are demands from Fiji Meat, hotels and working customers who place their orders with us,” he said.

“It’s quite a profitable business for us but a lot of work needs to be done that is trying feed our livestock everyday which involves a lot of cooking and the supplementing the feed.
“We make our feed for the pigs to cut down on costs that is why we do a lot of cassava farming; they are fed mixed cooked cassava, rice and fish everyday; this is an alternative to assist us in feeding them.”
Lieutenant-Colonel Vasu said they were looking at targeting half a million dollars from the piggery farm this year.
“At the end of the year we are only allowed to use $200,000 and the rest is given back to the Government,” he said.
“For the past years we have self-sustained everything we have and plans are underway to build new sheds for the piggery farm with the capacity holding 100 mother pigs.
“One of the areas that consume a lot of cost is piggery feed and hoping in three years we will be able to produce our own feed,” he said.
