New multi-purpose pack house for ‘Eua farmers

A new multi-purpose pack house  is being built at the Funga Fonua funded by the Australian government.

“When complete, the Pack House will be used by communities to process and pack agricultural produce for export”, a comment on the Australian High Commission Tonga Facebook page read.

“Australia is proud to support livelihoods and broad-based economic growth in Tonga through initiatives that help communities access business opportunities”, it added.

The AU$200,000 facility, built in partnership with the Mainstreaming of Rural Development Initiatives Tonga Trust (MORDI TT) will be open soon.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
