Fiji: Ginger farmers state they are treated unfairly by Frespac Ginger Fiji Ltd

A group of ginger farmers are claiming unfair treatment by Frespac Ginger Fiji Limited. A Wainibuku farmer stated that he has been supplying ginger to the Australian-owned company for the last five years under a contract. However, he and other farmers were informed earlier this week that the company would not be accepting any ginger from them.

After raising concerns with the Frespac management, they were informed that their ginger would be bought by the company but at a reduced rate of $1.10 per kg, compared to the usual rate of $1.60.

The farmers said it was heart-breaking to see their hard work over the past seven months receive only two-thirds of the returns that they usually get.
