The Sautu Restaurant business is steady, and we are pleased with its performance in the last six months, says Fiji Agromarketing chief executive officer Alvin Sharma.

Fiji Agromarketing employs more than a 100 staff at it’s Nausori plant.

Mr Sharma said he strongly believes in gender balance and it shows through his diverse team.

“Over 60 per cent of our overall employees are women, including four women representatives in our six-member Executive Management Team.”

“We strongly believe not just in gender equality but also in promoting diversity in our workplace.”

“Our Sautu Restaurant is now certified Grade A by the Ministry of Health and is now also Halaal certified.”

“The restaurant staff now include graduates from the Fiji National University’s School of Catering.”

“It serves a variety of fish-based and beef-based meals and is now also introducing chicken-based dishes.”

“We have noted that the fish-based meals remain most popular amongst the patrons of our restaurant. Meals are very affordable.”

He added they are taking a step into introducing real time point of sale concepts for better and updated management and productivity.

We will soon be introducing a Point of Sale at the Fiji Agro Marketing which will be piloted through our SAUTU Restaurant.

This will allow us to get more real-time data about our frontline business and measure and improve the required efficiencies better.

Furthermore, because of the popular demand they have had to extend their operational hours to accommodate the increase of interest from locals.

“The opening hours of our restaurant have been extended from earlier this month and our restaurant now opens from 7.00 am – 7.30 pm every weekday and from 8.00 am – 3.00 pm on Saturdays.”

Sautu is closed on Sundays and public holidays.

The restaurant is in the same building at Fiji Agromarketing in Nausori.
