A Bua native who was honoured with a farewell party on Saturday said the opportunities provided by his employer Fiji Dairy created the environment where he chose to remain loyal.

Mr Narayan received his recognition award and certificate on Saturday evening from the Fiji Dairy Limited, general manager, Sundeep Kumar, during his farewell party.

“This was the best moment of my life, I felt like all my hard work and loyalty throughout the years were noted in the company’s good books and I am proud of it,” Mr Narayan said.

“I never ever tried to find another job as my work was very challenging and nobody will ever leave a company like this where the opportunity to grow was huge,” 55-year-old Jai Narayan said.

One of the longest serving staff of Fiji Dairy after 35 years, the Nakasi resident never veered off to another company but worked his way up, the first and the last place Mr Narayan worked.

He started off at Fiji Dairy in March 1981 at the age of 20.

It was this company which gave him an opportunity to showcase his resilience and diligence.

As well he has been able hone his skill-set for over three decades of a career after leaving Vanua Levu in search of a better livelihood.

As he recalled his humble beginnings at Fiji Dairy Factory’s powder packing room, Mr Narayan said, the job was challenging but he was confident of his growth in the company.

“After spending some time at the powder packing room, the company bought a new Fun Flavour machine and I was assigned to operate in the laboratory,” Mr Narayan said.

He was later promoted as the Alkalinised Pasteurising Vessels Supervisor in the Milk Reception Area where he will end his career on February 3.

“I saw Fiji Dairy develop as a company and I also grew my skill-set with them,” he said.

“I enjoyed my job as it was very challenging as I had been assigned to handle a lot of new machines as they were established in the factory.”

Mr Narayan plans to spend more time with his family when he leaves next month.
