Peter Sahay spent 19 years in China operating his own factory and warehouse, where he designed machines various magnitude.

Two years ago, he came to Fiji to take a short break, as the COVID -19 pandemic took its toll in China.

His plans to return to China were impacted as a result of border closure.

Since then, Mr Sahay opened machinery workshops in Lautoka, and Sigatoka.

 

Another New Venture

Yesterday, he opened his third outlet, trading as SSUP Farm Machinery and Equipment.

It is located along the main street of Labasa Town.

An engineer by profession, Mr Sahay, said he spent close to $1.2 million in investments that provided jobs for 12 Fijians.

“We sell a wide range of farm machinery and equipment, seeds, fertiliser, and pesticides for all types of farming, be it sugarcane, rice, vegetables, backyard farming, kava or ginger,” Mr Sahay said.

 

Government Help

“He hailed the Government, and especially the Ministry of Agriculture, for the initiative in the recent years to ensure we overcome the effects of the pandemic, and encouraging farmers to invest.”

Minister for Agriculture, Mahendra said the rate of economic recovery from COVID-19 was unbelievable.

Mr Sahay will reach out to farmers in the outer islands, to hire his equipment.
