301215 PRISTINE INCREASES PAY FOR FESTIVE SEASON
By Aloysius Laukai
The Buka based Indian Copra mill Pristine 101 has increased its Price of Copra per Bag to K95 this festive season to support farmers with the festive celebrations.
The Mill has also started giving RICE Bags as bonus for farmers bringing Copra Bags to the mill.
New Dawn FM went to the Pristine 101 Copra mill buying point and saw the place and cars full of Copra waiting to offload their Bags.
Meanwhile a farmer, TIMOTHY TSIKULA told New Dawn FM today that he was not happy with the Price and wants the government to make sure Copra price is increased to meet the production cost.
He said that the Mill must increase its pay instead of handing Rice Bags which is not a good bonus for their labor.
TIMOTHY wants the price increased to make farmers benefit for their hard work.
