Australia is proud to support MK Local food Haus, a local Solomon Islands business taking quality local fresh produce, protein, and cooked food from local communities and reselling in Honiara.
Australian High Commissioner, Rod Hilton, was pleased to launch MK Local Foods shop and cafe this week, and to meet the incredible Debbie Lukisi, a driver of economic opportunity for her community, promoting Solomon Islands food, culture and people.
MK Local Foods sources supplies from around 300 farmers from Northeast Guadalcanal, and employs 10 permanent staff and 20 causal workers.
As demand for her products increases, more farmers will benefit and more local communities will benefit.
MK Local Foods is now online and Solomon Islanders living overseas and in Solomon Islands can place orders and be delivered to their families in and around Honiara!
The Australian High Commission is very happy to have partnered with MK Local Foods to support its training for farmers to establish new crops, basic business skills training, improving its administrative and logistics capacity, development of a database to track produce availability, marketing and new online shop.
