Pacific Fishing Company celebrated its 50th anniversary in Suva last night as it revealed efforts to improve operations and working conditions.

Speaking at the celebrations in Suva last night, company chairman Ikbal Jannif said the company helped to diversify sources of income and employment in the seven islands of Lomaiviti.

"It pays approximately $8million annually in wages. This money circulates throughout Lomaiviti Province and has reduced the island's dependence on copra and government's assistance," said Mr Jannif.

He said the company was the biggest employer on Ovalau with a capacity workforce of about 1000 people.
