FUTUNA HANDICRAFT ASSOCIATION LAND SWP HAT SUPPLY CONTRACT

The National Week of Agriculture (NWA) has brought a success story after all for Futuna Handicraft Association as Australian company Pinata Farm request all its seasonal worker employees supplied by Konekt Pacific to have with them sun smart hats when traveling to Australia.

Seasonal recruitment agency Konekt Pacific has supplied Pinata farm with 78 workers and a further 300 for the 2022 season.

Pacific Imports Irene Willie will begin discussions with Futuna Handicraft Association to come up with a specific design that will be approved by Pinata Farm for the SWP workers.

The arrangement for Futuna Handicraft Association is now underway and is successful after the Department of Industry and Vanuatu Made brand team begin their eCommerce partnership with Pacific Imports.

The Department of Industry invited the Futuna Handicraft Association to be part of the eCommerce program managed by Pacific Imports and that introduction has now landed the handicraft association from the southern part of Vanuatu an annual contract.

The NWA on Tanna island has yielded another success for the Vanuatu Export Program managed by the Department of Industry.
