Hygiene workshop

Jone Kalouniviti
Friday, February 21, 2014

THE health of the citizens of Lautoka is dependent on the quality and hygiene of food sold at the market.

This was the message conveyed by Lautoka City Council CEO Jone Nakauvadra at a workshop to promote food hygiene and good practices.

Mr Nakauvadra said market vendors played an important role so it was important they sold produce that were healthy and clean.

The LCC, the Fiji Livestock and Crop Council and the Consumer Council have joined hands with facilitators from the International Trade Centre and European Union in this project for market vendors.

Facilitators Dr Namrata Wakhaloo and Ludovica Ghizzoni, who are consultants with the ITC, made a tour of the market last week taking pictures and interviewing vendors.

Yesterday, they showed vendors pictures of what they were doing wrong and how to improve on presentation and preparation.
