Papua New Guinea: Jiwaka province citrus supply thrives

In order to be able to market and distribute citrus fruits grown by small scale farmers in Jiwaka, the Jiwaka Development Corporation has entered a strategic partnership with leading agribusiness Innovative Agro Industry Ltd.

The partners established a procurement point in Minj where citrus fruits such as lemons, lime, oranges and tangerines from Jiwaka citrus farmers are sold and bought. From there, the citrus fruits enter a cold chain and are delivered to the urban markets in Lae and Port Moresby. This creates market access to Jiwaka farmers and also provides the urban consumers with quality citrus at affordable prices, which are otherwise imported from overseas and sold at high prices.
