Following on in her father’s footsteps, Josephine Fong operates a home bakery business to help her during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Her passion for baking and operating a business started when she was 16 years old when her father, the late William Fong, worked as a chef and owned the Island restaurant in Nadi.

It was through her dad, that she was motivated to own a restaurant and involve herself in culinary arts.

She used to manage the Kona restaurant, which had ceased operation because of COVID-19.

Ms Fong has been actively engaged in the Barter for Better Fiji Facebook page, which has given her platform to market her home bakery business.

“The business started a month ago and had gone well,” she said.

Through her business, she is able to support her husband, whose work has also been affected by the pandemic, and their two children.

“My husband works for Mega Courts, he has also been affected with pay cut so this cake business has really helped us support our family,” she said.

Mrs Fong also worked at the Hard Rock Cafe and Ed’s Bar Cafe as a pastry chef.

“I worked at some of the restaurants in Nadi without qualification but it was only my talents that enabled me to strive to my dreams.”

Ms Fong has maternal links to Yaroi, Matuku, Lau
