Farmers in the province of Tailevu and nearby areas no longer have to travel to Suva or Nausori to purchase farming tools and equipment, seeds, cattle feeds and other farming products.
This is after the opening of the Northland Farmers’ Co-operative Retail Store in Korovou, Tailevu today.
While opening the retail store, Minister for Industry and Trade Faiyaz Koya said over the past 5 years, an average of 20 resource based co-operatives have registered each year.
He also adds that members of the co-operatives not only create businesses to improve their livelihoods, they are also improving the well being of their community by creating economic activity and employment.
Koya stated the opening of the Northland Farmers’ Co-operative Retail Store in Korovou Town will not only bring life to the Province of Tailevu, but to the other nearby Provinces as well.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
