Renown wholesaler and distributor, Ashabhai Group of Companies, is investing $7 million into a warehouse and cold storage facility signaling confidence for further expansion in the country.

The groundbreaking ceremony took place at the new site in Viria East, Vatuwaqa yesterday with company Group Director, Harish Patel, together with his wife Darshani Patel and their nephew Shivam Patel officiating the event.

The construction will create 50 jobs and be completed  by mid next year.

 

Shivam Patel, who was recently appointed as company director said: “This new cold storage facility will not only benefit our company but also our valued customers and the local community as well.

“I am grateful to be in the position and it’s good to finally be able to work alongside my uncle to continue on the legacy that my grandfather, Ashabhai, had created.”

Meanwhile, the company is soon to complete another cold storage facility in Volivoli, Nadi.

It was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
