10:08 am on 19 September 2006

Aarco Samoa Ltd has taken over Desico Samoa, a dessicated coconut company, with a plant at Vaitele.

The company wants to export to the European Union, through France.

Aarco Samoa took over Desico after an attempt by Samoa Niu products to run the operation which then ran into financial difficulties.

Aarco then bought out Samoa Niu.

About 2million US dollars was spent on refurbishing the company's plant before it was recommisisoned.
