The IAS Manager Laboratory Services, Dr Vincent Lal and IAS Key Technical Person, Mr. Jeremaia Koroijiuta participated in a workshop organised by the United States Ambassador (Hon. Joseph J Cella)   to Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Tonga and Tuvalu on  the 29th of September 2020 at the US Embassy at Princess Road, Suva.
The workshop hosted stakeholders from Fiji’s kava industry and focused on how local kava producers can meet the demands and quality of the US market considering that the USA is currently the largest importer of Fiji kava.
“The inclusion of IAS in the workshop is testament of the important role of Analytical testing laboratories in ensuring export of quality Fiji Kava.  IAS will give priority to exploring ways of upgrading its kava testing capabilities to meet the growing demands of the kava industry,” said Dr. Lal.
