He said on behalf of SolTuna, I would like to thank SINIS for allowing us to use the expo to promote the company’s new premium tuna products.
“Our goal at this year’s 2023 Pasifiki Athlete Career & Education Expo is to introduce the new Solomon Blue Premium Tuna products to our local athletes since it’s delicious, and now accessible in local and regional markets.
“So far, the new Solomon Blue Premium Tuna products are sold in the domestic market and now exported to New Zealand.
“The premium tuna brands – Chilli Skip Jack and Solomon Olive Oil are the new high-quality products that we want to showcase. All of SolTuna Premium Tuna products have been exported, bought, and sold on retail store shelves in New Zealand.
“Olive oil is significantly more expensive than Soybean oil,” Paul added.
He said that the premium tuna brands – Chilli Skip Jack and Solomon Olive Oil Daily are also available at the Mart Limited at the Supreme Plaza Kukum, East Honiara, AusMart Limited stores in Honiara, and Bulk Shop store and supermarket outlets in Honiara.
“Tuna is essential to many people’s daily lives and our new premium tuna products are already selling themselves in our local retail market.
“The products symbolize our country and as Solomon Islanders, we must purchase it,” he said.
“Since Tuna is our nation’s primary source of revenue, we must work together on all fronts to safeguard it. Families and individuals can catch tuna for their food or sell it to earn money to support their daily livelihood. Therefore, I think that protecting our tuna resources will be good for us and our future generations,” he added.
