The Fiji Crop and Livestock Council has moved from its offices from Lautoka into the Ministry of Primary Industries in Suva at the invitation of the Government.
The move reflects a closer working relationship with the Government to benefit 14 of its commodity association members.
Chair Simon Cole, says the Council was facing challenges working in the sugar belt area.
Cole says they have turned to Government that originally created FCLC.
FCLC has 30,000 farmers now registered representing the Pigs, Honey, Dalo, Yaqona, Grazing Livestock, Ginger, Cocoa, Agri-Exporters, Rice, and Organics associations that make up its council.
He says presently the Council is focused on developing agricultural insurance, contract farming and cyclone rehabilitation work as well as serving on key agricultural committees.
