BAF trains on meeting SOP for agro products

August 13, 2015 11:22 pm

Bio Security Authority of Fiji is strengthening it’s campaign to educate relevant stakeholders on the importance of meeting standard operating procedures for heat-treated agricultural products.

This comes after New Zealand lifted suspension on eggplant, mango, breadfruit and papaya imports from Fiji following initial claims there were anomalies in the operational measures taken in Fiji under the Bilateral Quarantine Agreement.

Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says it is important for individual exporters to meet Fiji’s trading partner’s standards so as not to jeopardize all exports of Fijian products.

“Bio-security is arranging a training for farmers and people who can do the packing and the of course the various other stakeholders that are involved in the entire value chain process there is training for them to ensure there is compliance and they also understand how to mitigate risks.”

A recent ban on eggplants, mangoes, breadfruit and papaya has been lifted after an audit of Nature’s Way – the exporting facility and a meeting between Fiji and NZ officials.
