AFTER a successful 2013 agriculture show in Lautoka last week, major sponsor Goodman Fielder has recommitted itself to next year's show.

Speaking at the final night of the week-long event, company general manager Chris Zaymaan said the Crest chicken manufacturers would be happy to be part of the show again in 2014.

"After seeing the success of the overall show this year, we have decided to be part of it again next year," he said.

"One of the things that really surprised me was the commitment by each farmer to come out in support of the whole agriculture show.

"They came out to showcase some of their best produce and we are very proud to be part of something that helps these farmers."

He said Crest Chicken's main objective was to support and help promote agriculture in Fiji.

"The annual Crest Agriculture Show forms part of an important strategy to encourage Fiji to become self-sufficient in feeding itself.

"Enhancing the agricultural capacity is very important for now and the long-term," he added.

Minister for Agriculture Lieutenant Colonel Inia Seruiratu highlighted the event provided a platform for farmers to come together and showcase what they had to offer.
