Fiji Sun - - Business -

Fiji Cof­fee has again part­nered with Tourism Fiji for the third Fi­jian Tourism Expo (FTE). They will pro­vide pre­mium cof­fee served by an in­ter­na­tional barista for par­tic­i­pants at­tend­ing the three-day event, for $2.

This do­na­tion which will go di­rectly to­wards the Fiji Cancer So­ci­ety.

In 2015, Fiji Cof­fee served more than 2,600 cofees at FTE, and suc­ces­sively ran a ‘gold coin’ fundrais­ing drive to sup­port the Fiji Cancer So­ci­ety.

Over $1,000 was col­lected from the ini­tia­tive with all pro­ceeds go­ing di­rectly to the Fiji Cancer So­ci­ety.

Fiji Cof­fee gen­eral man­ager, Phillip Low said: “For FTE 2016, we will be work­ing two dif­fer­ent sta­tions with the launch of our new cor­po­rate or of­fice spe­cific au­to­matic cof­fee ma­chines - FRANKE H.”

“This year we will once again fea­ture the mas­ter barista Mr Tony Vi­tiello and our in­ter­na­tion­ally trained and fully qual­i­fied Fi­jian barista, Ms Esi­teri Bovoro work­ing to­gether with our other lo­cal baris­tas on one sta­tion,” Mr Low said.

Mr Low ex­plained that for FTE 2016 gold coin drive, “it will be $2 for a cof­fee made by our baris­tas and $1 for a self-ser­vice cof­fee from our Franke H.

“All pro­ceeds will be go­ing to the Fiji Cancer So­ci­ety and the funds will be handed over to the Fiji Cancer So­ci­ety ad­min­is­tra­tor on the fi­nal day of the FTE.”

Fiji Cof­fee will be at FTE 2016 serv­ing cof­fee from 8.30am – 3.30pm ev­ery day.

Mr Low is call­ing on par­tic­i­pants at FTE 2016 to give gen­er­ously to sup­port the wor­thy cause.

As “the Fiji Cancer So­ci­ety still has pa­tients need­ing ac­cess to treat­ment now more than ever af­ter the dev­as­ta­tion of Cy­clone Win­ston that Fiji faced in Fe­bru­ary.”

The amount col­lected from the ini­tia­tive will be an­nounced at the end of FTE 2016.

Tourism Fiji’s ex­ec­u­tive chair­man, Tru­man Bradley ac­knowl­edged Fiji Cof­fee and Lawhill Limited for their con­tin­ued sup­port for the expo.

“Our part­ner­ship with Fiji Cof­fee and Lawhill Limited is an­other great ex­am­ple of in­dus­try stake­hold­ers work­ing hand-in­hand for the greater good.

“We can­not stress enough the im­por­tance of such re­la­tion­ships and we thank Fiji Cof­fee and Lawhill for their con­tri­bu­tions as a gold spon­sor of FTE,” Mr Bradley said.

Lawhill Wines & Spir­its are also spon­sor­ing the FTE 2016 Clos­ing Din­ner with West­pac.
