Fiji: Agriculture Ministry to launch candy made from pawpaw and pineapple

In an attempt to minimise pawpaw and pineapple flooding the market, the Fijian government will soon be launching candy products made from these fruits. Minister for Agriculture Dr Mahendra Reddy has claimed that growers will not have to worry about flooding the market, as the Agriculture Marketing Authority would take care of the purchasing of the produce.

Dr Reddy says at the moment local supermarkets were selling dried fruits and dried candies manufactured abroad, but that would change as the country would now have the capacity to produce its own as part of product development by the Agriculture Ministry.
