Fijian who owns, produced the drink was a professional rugby player before venturing into business.

Juice Fiji, a local and organic health juice, is the new drink in town that can combat non communicable diseases (NCDs) in Fiji, says founder Panapasa Dau­nakamakama.

Produced by Beulah Land Fiji, the juice, made out of local fruits and herbs, is a natural energiser, post workout supplement and improves overall gut health.

Mr Daunukamakama said the health juice was an organic detox that could help boost the immune system.

“The product is all about prevent­ing diseases and looking after your gut health,” he said.

“We as a society depend too much on processed foods and that needs to change if we are to prevent NCDs such as diabetes.

“If we want to live and enjoy life we have to eat the right foods and go for natural alternatives.”

The juice is made using ginger, turmeric, coriander, watermelon, pineapple, pawpaw and other herbs and fruits.Heakth Juice

“I started supplying the health juice commercially about eight months ago, but I have been ex­perimenting the idea for about nine years,” he said.

“My daughter was sick, she suf­fered from a skin infection. We had tried everything and failed so that is when I decided to try this method which I had learnt from my grand­mother.

“It worked, my daughter was healed within a few months.”

From Namadi Heights in Suva, the 39-year-old was a professional rugby player before venturing into business.

He played rugby for New Zealand club Kia Toa for 10 years before returning home to pursue agricul­ture. He owns Beulah Land, a lush 36-acre estate in Waidra Kasavu and is also venturing into agro-eco-tourism by introducing treehouses as a retreat expedition.

What remains of his land is stra­tegically being diversified into agriculture ranging from farming fruit trees and commercial crops to planting agarwood and mahogany for future sustainable logging.

“For now, consumers can find the juice at Kundan Singh Service Sta­tion, CJS Supermarket and Dolphin Plaza in Suva,” he said.

“Plans are underway to increase the scale of productions and supply it across Fiji and we will look at ex­porting options as well.”
