NEW PROCESSING FACILITY FOR AGRO MARKETING AUTHORITY IN SAVUSAVU

The Ministry of Agriculture will soon be handing out a list of crops to farmers to grow which they would provide the market for.

This was announced by the Minister for Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development, Waterways and Environment Hon. Dr Mahendra Reddy while opening the new Agro Marketing Authority (AMA) processing facility in Savusavu.

“It is in this regard that Government has decided to work very closely with Agro Marketing Authority to ensure that we provide farmers the market,” Dr Reddy said.

He said the processing facility would be used to check and clean produce brought in by farmers before it is taken to the market.

This is to ensure that AMA branding is synonymous with quality.
