Medicinal nonu juice from Samoa will soon be sold widely in China following a new business deal between Pure Pacifika Samoa Ltd, which produces the fermented nonu juice and the Chinese Business Roundtable Council of New Zealand.
The roundtable chairman, Jack Chen, and his delegation of fourteen are in Samoa to visit the nonu juice factory at Vaitele.
The delegation includes two representatives of New Zealand's Reef Group which is also working on the joint venture with the Pure Pacifika Samoa limited.
The visiting Chinese business people were in Savaii yesterday to meet with Sasina villagers.
Two hundred hectares of the village's land will be used for a nonu plantation as part of the new venture.
Confirmed orders to the China market start with 50,000 litres of nonu juice to be exported in September this year.
