Ba is a vibrant town with strong community values recognised for its agriculture, industrial and sporting activities.

The Town is regarded as a resource rich area of Fiji.

It evolved from a few trading shops on the riverbank into a thriving commercial center and became the Industrial Capital of Fiji.

The Ba Township was proclaimed on 11 April, 1939 and Ba Town Council is the municipal law-making body for the town of Ba.

Located on the western side of Viti Levu, Ba is famous for its craziness in soccer for its many wins in the national tournaments like IDC and BOG.

There is also a giant soccer ball in the heart of the town, which symbolises that Ba is one of the best soccer teams in Fiji.

But more importantly, it is home of some of the largest business houses in the country, backed by sugar and agriculture over so many years.

There are many businesses who began their journey in Ba and today have spread all across the country and some have even diversified further.

In this feature, we will be looking at some of these businesses, where they started and where they are today.

Ba Town is divided into five Wards;

  • Varoka (Central)
  • Varadoli
  • Rarawai
  • Yalalevu
  • Namosau
