Fiji Dalo Value Chain (Poster)

21 Sep 2018

This poster contains information about Fiji's dalo value chain and the opportunities to improve dalo quality and consistency. Producing quality dalo for export requires effort throughout the value chain. Farmers need to produce dalo which is of good size and even shape, without damage from pests. The dalo then needs to be transported to exporters quickly without damage. The exporters are then responsible for cleaning, processing and shipping the dalo so that it arrives in the export market with a good shelf life and at a competitive price. Dalo must be of high quality if it is being sent to export markets.

It highlights best practices of growing taro with quality that is maintained along the value chain, for both domestic and export markets. It will also help stakeholders to better equip themselves with information and advice to advance in the dalo industry. The manual clearly suggests nothing can be achieved in isolation.

Fiji Kava Value Chain Analysis Report

13 Jun 2018

Fiji is experiencing a second kava boom. Unlike the boom of the 1990s that was driven by European export demands, the present boom is fuelled largely by domestic and regional demand with a small but important element of exports beyond Pacific island countries. This analysis of the kava value chain is part of efforts to improve the consistency and reliability of Fiji’s kava production and grow exports of quality kava products. The analysis also includes a detailed study of gender and social inclusion aspects.
