Enhanced fruit production and postharvest handling systems for Fiji, Samoa, and Tonga

This project aims to increase the economic and disaster resilience of selected tropical fruit value chains.
Fruit production in the Pacific represents less than 10% of the overall horticultural output, despite favourable climates and increasing market opportunities.
Pacific Island governments widely acknowledge the need to expand fruit production and reflect it in national sectorial development policies.
This project will develop resilient tropical fruit value chains in Fiji, Samoa, and Tonga based on the five regionally significant fruit crops: papaya, pineapple, mango, breadfruit, and citrus.
This project is part of the PARDI-2 initiative portfolio. It also operates in close partnership ACIAR project FST/2014/067 Enhancing value added products and environmental benefits from agroforestry systems in the Pacific, and the UN-FAO Samoan postharvest project (3503-041115).
