Nonu breakthrough for Wilex Samoa
Amidst the coronavirus pandemic struggles, there is good news for Samoa exporters.
A container of “Samoa Noni Loa” [nonu juice] from Wilex Samoa is being shipped to China, the company announced yesterday.
The company has sent a 40 foot container of nonu juice (Samoa Noni Loa), the first of what they hope is the start of something special for Samoa.
“The container is the first of many, in a deal signed by the local family owned company to supply over 1000 tonnes of Nonu Juice for the Chinese Market,” a statement from the company said.
“The deal will benefit our local farmers to help supply Nonu Fruit for the order throughout 2020.
“Nonu Juice exports have grown exponentially out of Samoa with the Nonu Juice health benefits being promoted throughout the Asian and American Markets. Nonu Juice is rich in Antioxidants, Vitamic C, Vitamin B3, Vitamin A and Iron.
“Studies have also found Nonu Juice to help regulate blood pressure and boost immunity and health.”
The statement added that Wilex relies heavily on the tourism industry to sell its locally manufactured products like Chocolate, Nonu Juice and Kava products.
“With the tourism industry at a standstill in Samoa due to the COVID19 Pandemic this is one “light at the end of the tunnel” for the company.”
