Update: 3:01PM A FIJI Kava Quality manual aimed at improving and maintaining the quality of the national drink will be launched this Thursday.

According to Vili Caniogo, team leader at the Pacific Agriculture Policy Project of the Pacific Community, the manual is a tool to be used by everyone in the industry.

The Pacific Community (SPC) in conjunction with the Ministry of Agriculture is this week training trainers who will use the manual entitled 'Fiji Yaqona Quality Manual' and the Fiji Yaqona Standard.
