A NEW collection centre for agricultural produce will be set up in the new satellite town in Navatumali, Navosa.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki said the collection centre would be a gathering point for the farmers who travelled far to sell their produce.

"Navosa is more land orientated and what we'll do is we'll build a collection centre in Navatumali for their agricultural produce and Navatumali will become a small town, we are calling it a rural growth centre," he said.

"Right now, the Lands Department and the Town and Country Planning and TLTB are sourcing the land.

"They are rezoning the area, there will be a government station, a school and also a residential and commercial area and sports facilities for Navosa.

"So it will basically be like a small town."

He said the collection centre was where farmers could take their produce.
