Fiji Breadfruits : An export potential

Another crop that is in demand overseas are Fiji's breadfruits. The taste and quality of Fiji breadfruit is supposedly highly preferred in overseas markets with 6 tonnes of its exported last year. This year another 6 to 7 tonnes are estimated to be exported. Export prices are between F$1.80 to F$2.00 per kilogram.

In light of a shortage of breadfruit due to the increase in demand for canned breadfruit overseas, there is a market potential here for investors. Canned breadfruit are exported to Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

Currently, farmers from Sigatoka, Verata and the Tailevu area are suppliers of breadfruit. Farmers who wish to supply fresh breadfruit to exporters needed to register their farm under Bilateral Quarantine Agreement (BQA) to ensure that they adhere to the quarantine and export requirements.

Out of the 20 different varieties of breadfruits in Fiji only two varieties, Uto Dina and Balekana, are being exported.
