Kava exports doing well

The kava industry is doing very well with F$3.6 million worth of it exported last year. This compares with F$2.5 million exported in 2005.

The industry is looking forward to exports being better in 2007 compared to 2006. There is also a high demand for Fiji kava on overseas markets given its taste and quality.

Kava is being bought from suppliers locally at between F$25.00 to F$27.00 a kilogram for 'lewena' (the stem portion of a kava plant) and between F$25.00 to F$30.00 a kilogram for 'waka' (the root portion of a kava plant).

Suppliers are being asked to ensure that kava is clean and thoroughly dried before they sell it to buyers.

Kava exports are made to the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Tuvalu, Wallis and Futuna, and Samoa.
