In Fiji, kava and taro dominate exports and potentially involve large numbers of local households. However, other fresh produce show increasing promise with potential for export growth are: 1) taro 2) cassava 3) ginger 4) turmeric 5) vegetables.
Fresh produce includes export-oriented tree crops (papaya, mango, breadfruit, coconut), root crops (cassava, taro, ginger and turmeric) and vegetables (okra, chilies, eggplant). Fresh produce may be placed on the market directly in an unprocessed state or may be frozen, dried or preserved. The fresh produce sector is selected on the basis that export market pathways are open, there are active exporters, potential for growth and feasible areas for PHAMA Plus to support.
