Women to benefit from coconut oil factory

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, August 02, 2014

ABOUT 300 women of Rabi Island may benefit from the newly-opened Banaban Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) factory as dividends incurred will be evenly distributed to them annually. And as part of efforts to market their products, the women's group travelled all the way to Labasa to be part of the Northern Division Agriculture Show at Subrail Park in Labasa on Thursday.

The group had the opportunity to sell their products such as virgin coconut oil, coconut oil, scented oil, coconut soap and dried mill, to name a few, to the people present.

Group representative Terikano Takesau said the factory had been seen as a source of blessing to the women on the island.

"Now that we have started, our plan is to share the dividends among the registered women," she said.
