Fiji celebrates 50 years of local manufacturing and employment

01 Dec 2015

Congratulations to our team in Fiji, who are celebrating 50 years of local manufacturing and employment. Peter Diplaris, CEO and Managing Director, and Sid Takla, Executive General Manager Business to Business, acknowledged this amazing achievement and celebrated with employees at a morning tea held at the Nakasi Manufacturing facility.

Eldon Eastgate, General Manager Pacific Islands said, “Since the first Viti toilet roll ran off  Fiji production lines in 1965, the company and our employees have worked to ensure our brands are household names and synonymous with quality, innovation and customer service.”

"We are also very proud of how we continue to support and care for the local community and the people of the Pacific region. We provide ‘Giggles Starter packs’ to new parents, support charity Medical Services Pacific (MSP) who provide healthcare services to women and youth, global hand washing day, clean up campaigns within our communities, and provide monthly product donations to not-for-profit organisations,” says Eldon.

Asaleo Care directly employs about 100 people in Fiji across three locations – Nakasi (South East), Lautoka (West) and Labasa (North). Our Fiji operations services a range of customers from public authorities, multinational corporations, and retail grocery outlets. Asaleo Care is the leading supplier across all its categories in Fiji and parts of the Pacific and now distributes to 13 countries in the Pacific.
