South Korean religious group run company in Fiji, Grace Road has refuted all allegations against the company.

Grace Road Co-owner, Daniel Kim says they were quiet all this time because they did not want to fuel the fire at that time and they were busy with their farms.

Kim says the allegations about them taking a loan of $8.5 million from the Fiji Development Bank is wrong as it was only $5 million and it was not in 2015 but in 2014, over a four year period.

He adds the funds was used in a good way.

When questioned by the media if they have repaid their loan before moving to Bank South Pacific, Kim says all loans have been repaid.

The Grace Road Co-owner also highlighted that all the land that they have acquired for farming are through legal processes.

He says these are lands in non-urban areas which landowners have left barren and they are using it to invest in the development of landowners and the nation as a whole.

Kim also revealed that they did not get special treatment from the previous government as they had also investigated them for about one year.

He says they are not hiding anything and they welcome anyone who wants to investigate them.

He further says since 2014, they have invested more than $100 million in the country, and none of that money goes overseas.

On their Navua farm, Grace Road is cultivating rice and vegetables such as lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumber and more.

Villagers in the Navua area are also employed at Grace Road.
