The Company Director of Kokonut Pacific Solomon Islands, Ewan Blair, said in New Zealand last week that his company will be looking to create more jobs locally manufacturing soap, hand cream and coconut oil insect repellent.
Mr Blair was attending the Auckland Pasifika festival where his company was showcasing the range of locally made products created from virgin coconut oil.
Kokonut Pacific is known to have helped many village communities in the Solomons gain an income from using the tools supplied to extract virgin coconut oil within an hour of opening a coconut.
I would like to add my thanks to Mr Blair and his company for creating sustainable livelihoods for rural communities and look forward to learning of his plans for added job creation.
