EU support beneficial to Solomon Islands exporters

A coffee exporter from the Solomon Islands exporter has significantly improved its production level with support from the European Union (EU) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community through the EU-funded Increasing Agricultural Commodity Trade (IACT) project. He says that support from the IACT project has contributed immensely to the success of his company. It has not only helped to boost production, but also to improve the flavour of the coffee produced.
The company is one of the 44 enterprises currently being assisted by the IACT project in the Pacific region. It managed to double its coffee production in 2012 when IACT first stepped in to provide the company with technical and business development assistance
The main goal of the IACT project is to strengthen the export capacity of Pacific members of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of Countries (ACP) in the primary industries of agriculture, forestry, aquaculture and livestock.
The IACT project employs a whole supply chain approach, assisting through the product development process from farm to factory to market. This helps commercial ventures to become export-oriented enterprises that are able to consistently supply overseas markets with competitive products.
The project operates in the 15 Pacific members of ACP (the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States): Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
Recently, we have presented a similar case based in Fiji.
