The Fiji Crop and Livestock Council’s trustees have reviewed the performance of its 16 farm associations and expressed their gratitude for the farmers' contributions in protecting food security under the most difficult of circumstances, a result of COVID-19.

FCLC CEO Jiu Daunivalu says the trustees were meeting for the first time since they were elected for a five-year term in February.

The trustees are Simon Cole, (Chairman) John Deo from the Fiji Coconut Farmers Association, Josua Raitilava from Fiji Ginger Farmers Association and Filimoni Kilawekana from Fiji Dalo Farmers Association.

She says the discussions centred on the way forward for the Council and its member associations.

The meeting also confirmed the agenda for the new FCLC Management Board meeting scheduled for December.

The Fiji Crop and Livestock Council is currently comprised of 16 member farmer organisations that represent approximately 60,000 farmers in the non-sugar agricultural section.

The Council is working closely with the Ministry of Agriculture and key stakeholders, in addressing issues that affect its members, introducing timely and quality services to achieve higher economic growth, building resilience for food security and nutrition and sustainable livelihood.
