A memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between the Fiji National University (FNU) and the Fiji Cooperative Dairy Company Limited (FCDCL) will encourage and promote academic-industry co-operation between the two organisations.

The scope of this five year partnership is education, research and training.

The organisations will promote joint research and training in dairy production where FNU and FCDCL will provide technical assistance in any dairy farming research which will be conducted jointly or by either of the organisations and will be published jointly by FCDCL and FNU.

While signing the agreement at FNU Nasinu Campus on Monday, FNU chancellor Ikbal Jannif said the partnership would benefit both the organisations.

“Under this partnership, FNU’s College of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (CAFF) students will benefit in terms of practical with student placement at FCDCL.

“This MoU will give us better opportunities and give our students better access to a very professional company in the dairy field. Research and publications will assist FCDCL in the technical side of their operations,” Mr Jannif said.

FCDCL chief executive officer Sachida Nand said the partnership was the beginning for a lot to come for the dairy industry.

“The MoU gives us a lot of opportunities in cross-collaboration with one of the best institutes here which is more into agriculture and other activities that gives us the opportunity to tap into each other’s resources in getting the dairy industry activities beyond what we are currently doing,” Mr Nand said.
