President Konrote Visits Rotuma

His Excellency, the President Major-General (Ret'd) Jioji Konusi Konrote visited Rotuma over the weekend and met with the Rotuma Council in efforts to make Rotuma an organic island. President Konrote said that the first problem Rotuma must look at is the threat of the fruit fly [that] has been a threat to fresh produce. For Rotuma to be declared as an organic island, all farming systems and products should comply with Pacific Organic Standards. The Pacific Organic Standard describes the requirements for organic production. It covers plant production, animal husbandry, beekeeping, collection of wild products and aquaculture, and also the processing and labeling of products derived from these activities, President Konrote also highlighted the importance of backyard farming and promoted the FIJI50 logo during his visit.
