The temporary suspension placed on imported food produce from Fiji to New Zealand has been lifted.

NZ MPI had temporarily suspended four imported commodities from Fiji- these were breadfruits, papaya, mangoes and eggplants on August 2nd.
However, they admitted they made an error suspending the four commodities as it was inappropriate.
