Nuku’alofa, Tonga – Nishi Trading Limited has announced a new look for its moringa powder and breadfruit flour.
The company says the packaging and products were well received at New Zealand’s Fine Food Show in Auckland earlier this year in July.
Operating for over two decades, the family owned Tongan enterprise works with farmers to produce quality products for export.
Project manager Jenny Nishi said : “We purchase 65% of our raw material for Moringa Powder from seven different growers and 75% for Breadfruit Flour and Frozen Breadfruit from twenty growers”.
“Many were impressed with the quality of the packaging and design at the Fine Food Show, there are three more designs we hope to complete in 2021 and one being for Cassava Flour”.
She said the completion of the project would be dependent on the completion of trials required for nutritional testing.
The activities are funded by the Farmers’ Organizations for Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (FO4ACP) Programme, a joint partnership between the European Union International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), Africa Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) and Pacific Island Farmers Organisation Network (PIFON).
