21.December.2010Fiji Sugar for Japan Market
The Embassy is currently having discussions with Sojitz Corporation officials responsible for sugar imports to explore the possibility of resuming sugar imports to Japan from Fiji. Sojitz Corp used to have exclusive rights for distribution of Fiji sugar in Japan and Korea. The Embassy has provided a brief on the Fiji Sugar Industry and the prospects/projection of production from 2011 onwards based on the restructure and streamlining of the various bodies within the Fiji Sugar Corporation (FSC), the current crop now under cultivation and the availability of farm lands for large scale farming as opposed to small scale family unit cultivation. Sojitz Corporation officials are expected to visit Fiji in early 2011 for direct consultation with FSC officials on proposed quota and shipment arrangements.
