THE development of a mini flour mill is well in progress at the Nasalia Women's Resource Centre in Naitasiri.

This was revealed to Minister for Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation Dr Jiko Luveni by the Nasalia Women's Group spokeswoman Ateca Cawake.

A government statement said while presenting the progress report at the Fiji Women's Federation meeting in Suva on Monday this week, Mrs Cawake provided an update to the minister.

"In November last year, one of our youths from the village had gone to Indonesia for training in flour-making processes. We are just waiting for the equipment to be provided by the Ministry of Agriculture and the women will be trained by this youth to use local items like cassava, banana and breadfruit to produce flour," Mrs Cawake said.

Dr Luveni said the ministry's vision on the One Centre One Product concept through the women resource centres was shaping well.

"The women resource centres operate with One Centre One Product approach which enables the women to perfect the quality of their products and ensure consistency with quality and quantity for effective marketing of their products," she said.

The Nasalia Women's Resource Centre was officially opened in December last year.
