THE Solomon Islands High Commission (SIHC) in Suva facilitated the distribution of the first batch of Solomon Blue dark tuna flakes to students studying in various institutions around Fiji on Saturday 22nd April 2023.

The Solomon Blue dark flakes were donated by SolTuna Limited, through New World to assist students studying in Fiji.

A total of 26 cartons of Solomon Blue dark flakes were distributed to approximately 347 students.

New World is one of the main importers and distributors of SolTuna products in Fiji. Labelling issues caused SolTuna to withdraw their Solomon Blue dark flakes from supermarket shelves in Fiji and were donated to students.

A total of 81 cartons of Solomon Blue dark flakes were picked up by the High Commission to be distributed in sequence. More distributions will take place in the coming months.

Solomon Islands High Commissioner to Fiji, His Excellency Joseph Ma’ahanua offers his deepest gratitude to SolTuna for the donation.

The timing of the donations received via New World comes at an appropriate time to assist students.
