Our Purpose

Key Components of the Food System in Fiji

In the heart of Fiji, agriculture thrives under the tropical sun and rich soils, yielding sugarcane, rice, and a vibrant array of fruits and vegetables. Recent years have seen a shift towards sustainable and organic farming, aligning with global trends. The land sustains not only the present but also the future, as farmers steward the earth with care, mindful of their impact on the environment.

Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean’s azure waters, fishing and aquaculture are integral to Fiji’s food system, providing vital protein and nutrients. However, the delicate marine ecosystem requires sustainable practices to ensure its preservation. Despite these challenges, the ocean remains a vital source of sustenance and livelihood for the Fijian people.

In kitchens across Fiji, tradition meets innovation as dishes blend local staples like taro and coconut with international flavors. While the introduction of imported foods has enriched the culinary landscape, it has also raised concerns about health and nutrition. The people of Fiji are embracing these changes, seeking a balance that honors their heritage while embracing a sustainable future.
