“Our team will also do sampling during this show so that customers can compare with the products they are currently buying,” he said.

“Currently our major customer base has been the Pacific Community in New Zealand and with this show we would like to present Fijian Made products to other communities within New Zealand.

“Partnering with Investment Fiji has given Panpac New Zealand a platform to represent our wide range of Fijian Made brands with other companies who are travelling from Fiji on one stand,” added Prasad.

Another company participating in the event is Golden Ocean Fish Limited, one of the leading seafood suppliers in Fiji.
