FRIEND was part of the mega-event “Suva on Sale” from 28 April to 5 May. We thank FBCL, the event organizers, for sponsoring our stall. This weeklong street market happened at an opportune time, as we were able to introduce our latest products in the ever growing Friend’s Fiji Style® range of handicrafts. These include locally-made unique jewelry boxes, coconut shell fruit bowls, soap dishes, pen holders etc, which are made by ex- offenders and other communities to earn an income and get out of poverty. Also newly available is Lime Pickle in 150g and 330g jars. Lime Pickle is an oil free product – great for people who are health conscious.
“Suva on Sale” was also a valuable platform to interact with people and raise public awareness about the work FRIEND does in social and economic empowerment. We sincerely thank everyone who visited us at our stall or purchased Friend’s Fiji Style® local, quality chutneys, pickles, jams,
handmade cards, clothing, and handicrafts and contributed towards poverty alleviation. Last but not least, a big vinaka vakalevu to all volunteers who helped at “Suva on Sale”!
