The P Meghji Group of Companies will be opening another new supermarket on Denarau Island.

Operations manager Eremasi Matanatabu said this during the South African trade seminar at the Tanoa International Hotel.

Currently, the group has established retail shops based in Lautoka, Nadi and in Suva.

“The second project is opening up a supermarket in Denarau Island, and we have advertised the positions two weeks ago,” Mr Matanatabu said.

He added the group would reveal the detail of the project at a later date.

However, Mr Matanatabu added the project may start in mid May this year and that would create more job opportunities.

 

Resort development

The company has further diversified in the past four years and has partnered with the Sheraton Group.

“With Sheraton Tokoriki we are also developing areas with Tokoriki Villas on Tokoriki Island and also this was devastated in the Cyclone Winston. We have just finished our renovation and the resort just opened up on February 14 this year.

 

Sheraton Four Points

The group is carrying out developments in Lautoka, where they have partnered with Sheraton Starwood Group.

“This will come as a Sheraton Four Points and this be developed in the Shirley Park area and this is a seven-storey building.

“We are due to commence these development projects early this year maybe in April.”

 

Wine market

The P Meghji Group of Companies is known for Wine masters, mainly wholesaling to the resorts. So 80 per cent of their business is looking after the few resorts around Fiji.

“We are the leaders of wine in Fiji because we bring wine from all parts of the world,including South Africa. There is a potential growth to bring more wine to Fiji.”

Mr Matanatabu added the challenges they faced was in the logistics department.

“The biggest curve that we have is logistics. The It takes three months to bring in a container, so full trade planning to bring trade from South Africa to Fiji has to be in advance.”
