THE owners of a backpackers resort in Uciwai, Nadi, have expressed concerns at the impact a local poultry company has on the resort and nearby residents.
Rendezvous Fiji managing director Inoke Seduadua said the construction of chicken broiler sheds by Toa Fiji Limited had a negative impact on guests.
"The company has four broiler sheds located in the vicinity and the smell that comes out of broiler sheds is really concerning," he said.
"It is also creating a negative tourism image for the guests who have been constantly complaining about the foul smell.
Saren Patel of Toa Fiji Ltd said Mr Seduadua's allegations were exaggerated.
"It's been nine months since the initial protests and if our operations were so mismanaged then we would have certainly heard from the Rendevouz group sooner," he said.
