Vanuatu helps in harvesting 40 tonnes of potatoes
Vanuatu's Minister of Agriculture Matai Seremaiah has helped potato farmers on Tanna island to harvest about 40 tonnes of organic potatoes.
He also provided a ship to cart the spuds to Port Vila where the government's Cooperatives Department can sell them in the local market.
The government wants to encourage the farmers to grow more potatoes, carrots and onions to reduce a reliance on imports and to export their crops.
The minister said while Vanuatu couldn't compete with major growers overseas, its marketing strategy would rely on its products being organic.
