An eighteen million dollar brewhouse has been opened by Paradise Beverages, the first phase of investments by the company.
However, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama had a serious message for everyone, about drinking habits in Fiji.
Amidst the celebrations there was a timely message about responsible consumption.
“The Government is especially concerned about recent incidents in Suva and Nausori in which people who have consumed far too much liquor have behaved unlawfully and harassed ordinary people going about their daily lives.”
The Prime Minister didn’t stop there – sending out a warning to anyone who causes a nuisance.
“The Police are quite rightly cracking down on these incidents and I repeat, as Prime Minister, that they will not be tolerated and the offenders punished with the full force of the law. People have a right to enjoy alcohol but they must do so without impinging on the rights of others or creating unnecessary disturbances and violations of the peace.”
The factory in Walu Bay Suva has been built with as much local expertise as possible with training provided where necessary.
Owners of Paradise Beverages, Coca-Cola say this is part of a forty four million dollar project called Bula Vou or New Life.
